Connecting Utah wine lovers with small-batch, boutique wineries that are dedicated to quality over quantity.
My love for wine started over 17 years ago while visiting Napa Valley on my honeymoon. At that time, I knew very little about wine yet fell in love with the entire experience. Listening to winemakers tell their story while pouring our wines mesmerized me and I couldn’t take my eyes off the beautiful scenery that encircled us as we drove from one winery to the next. On our way to the airport, I looked over at my husband and said, “we are coming back here every year.” And so, the tradition began.
In 2016 I started The Brooke Blend as a creative outlet. At the time, I had a stressful corporate job and craved something more that would bring me happiness and inspiration. Over the years, I’ve been able to turn The Brooke Blend into a full-time passion, leaving behind an unfulfilling job in the corporate world. It was a leap of faith and hasn’t always been easy, but I wouldn’t want it any other way. I get to do what I love every single day.
As a native Utahn, I see a huge potential to work with boutique winemakers that are interested in getting their handcrafted wines into the Utah market. As an independent Utah wine broker, I can now work my network and make that a reality.
My passion for wine goes deep and I want to share that passion with others through brand partnerships, virtual tastings and storytelling through my blog. Wine shouldn’t be intimidating. I keep things light, fun and approachable. I have completed my wine education through the WSET, level 3, and have a continued focus on learning and studying all things wine. So don’t be shy, let’s get started on a wine journey together.
As an independent wine broker, I will be able to assist Utah customers with special orders, through the Utah DABC online ordering website. This is specific to any product not carried in stores. As the wine broker, I will create the special orders in the DABC system, customers can then input an order, pay for and pick up the shipment at their desired DABC store.
