For Katie Barratt (a.k.a The Wine Fairy), one of Art In Voyage’s two permanent wine educators and experts, wine is so much more than what is in the bottle. It is the stories beyond the glass, the people, the vineyards, the secrets of the cellar. It is the culture, the history, and the joy that wine brings. It is the emotion, the beauty, and the magnificent scenery. Wine is a magical experience. Well, it can be, if you let it.
Katie is passionate about demystifying the mysteries of wine and sharing joy, knowledge, and laughter with anyone who’s willing to join her. Katie has dedicated her life to learning about wine. Through her studies and 27 years of experience in hospitality, food and wine, she delivers to her guests a wealth of knowledge, enhancing their experience and understanding of everything food and wine.
Her extensive travel experience also makes Katie a unique journey director for Art In Voyage, one who always goes above & beyond for her guests and their entertainment.
