Wine Writer & Educator

Kate Meyers Emery is a Finger Lakes and local wine evangelist, sharing the love and knowledge of her region through the classes she teaches and in her writing.

She began writing about wine with VinifeROC, a personal chronicle of adventures in wine, with a particular focus on Rochester and the Finger Lakes. The goal was simple, to write down thoughts, notes, and memories from wine travels in the Finger Lakes. Since starting the blog in 2017, Kate has expanded to writing for multiple publications, including Wine Traveler, The Vintner Project, Edible Finger Lakes, and Finger Lakes Wine Country.

Kate also enjoys sharing her enthusiasm for local wine with her community, teaching classes for Living Roots Wine Co., Women for Winesense, and the Finger Lakes Wine Festival. She is received her WSET 2 with distinction in 2019.
