Hello, I'm Kass.
I came to New Zealand in 2016 and spent 18 glorious months in this beautiful country where Queenstown and Central Otago stole my heart. Along my journey I stumbled across the wine industry and ended up working the 2017 vintage in Marlborough. I loved every minute and I cherished meeting all the interesting people I met along the way. I realised that the wine industry is where I wanted to be.

I'm British and had to return to the UK for family reasons in July 2017. but it just so happened that I would be home in time for a British harvest. So I applied for a job working for an English Sparkling Wine company, and here I am today working for Hattingley Valley Wines. As much as I have loved working in England, and the experience that I have gained, everyday I have been thinking about how I can get back to New Zealand. Wine is my passion and so is New Zealand, so I have applied and I have been accepted on to a university course to study Oenology and Viticulture at the University of Lincoln, starting in February 2019.

My dream of coming back to New Zealand is happening, and I would love to find a typical, warm and welcoming kiwi family to stay with during my studies.
