Trail to terroir, Kelsey Ivey is a buzz for the bountiful Pacific Northwest. Growing up in Olympia, Washington along the shores of the Puget Sound and evergreen forests of the Cascades Mountains, she learned to love the outdoors at an early age. From her parent’s backpack as a babe to donning her own, Kelsey climbed her first mountain at age 11 and then continued to explore the region one hike at a time.
While earning her bachelors of Art in Journalism at the University Oregon, she fell head over hiking boots for a new taste of adventure, wine and travel. From her first glass of bubbly in northern Italy to the wild varietals of Cape Town, South Africa and rich, savory Pinot Noirs of Oregon, Kelsey loves to share the grape story and the people behind it.
When not hiking or drinking wine, Kelsey spends most of her time training for her next half marathon, back-country skiing with her husband, or playing fetch with her adorable pup Revie.
