Rebecca was born and raised in Vacaville, California and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Photography from Sacramento State University.
Though she has photographed wine professionally before this is her first gig where she gets to share wine and wine-knowledge with others. She first visited Talisman in 2016 and fell in love with Pinot Noir and the at-home atmosphere and hospitality she experienced at the Tasting Room. She was working in Fine Art sales when the opportunity arose to work at Talisman and she couldn’t pass it up. In her own words “Working in the Wine Industry was never a goal, I wanted to work for Talisman.”
Her favorite aspect of the work is breaking through the intimidation many people feel when they approach wine tasting. She wants everyone to find the joy and satisfaction in tasting and drinking wine they love. She derives great satisfaction from tailoring tasting experiences and deducing the Talisman wine (or wines!) they will delight in the most.
She feels very fortunate to be able to use photography and graphic design training to help Talisman spread the news: It’s Pinot Time!
