    Your Hosts

    Wine Expert—Carolyn Holt of Vin Wine and Events


    My love of wine dates back decades; from a child raised by wine loving parents to an adult fond of these divine grapes. It’s really been in the past five years that I have wanted to take a career jump, feet first (actually heart first), into this world of wine. Vin Wine and Events has been an idea floating around in my head for the last three years, but as a school counselor there was never enough time to sit and plan. So, I took a leave of absence from school and decided to make this leap. With the help of my family and friends I’m moving myself away from educating children and into educating you about wine. I want to bring my love of education, wine and event planning to your home.

    Within the last few years, I have taken courses and classes, many through the Northwest Wine Academy. I have also been able to work with local wine makers and people within the wine business; as well as gaining hands on experience working at The Grape Choice in Kirkland, WA (a small local wine shop/bar) and at EFESTE Winery in Woodinville, WA.

    Vin Wine and Events is a wine event and retail service in the Seattle area. Vin’s wine experts will come to your home for a private wine experience. We can help you learn more about the different varietals, host a wine tasting event for your friends or teach you how to pair wine with your favorite foods. Book clubs, work functions, family gatherings, dinner parties, ladies-night-in, interest in learning new wines, etc. Whatever the event, Vin can take it to the next level.

    We teach you to Discover, Sip. Savor.
