Kelsey Schmidt - Wine Club Manager and Direct to Consumer Coordinator
We are pleased to welcome Kelsey Schmidt to the Broken Earth Family! Kelsey comes from an extensive wine background starting with an Agribusiness degree from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. After doing a study abroad program in Australia studying nothing but wine, it was clear where her future was; the wine industry! During her last year at Cal Poly she worked part time at Chamisal Vineyards in San Luis Obispo and then graduated with her degree in 2012. From there she went on to work for Southern Wine and Spirits for two and a half years as a Sales Rep in the Chain sector representing the Constellation brands in San Jose retail stores. During this time, she continued to expand her wine knowledge by working for Concannon Winery in Livermore on her weekends in the Wine Club Members Lounge. It wasn’t long before she missed the Central Coast enough to seek out a new position in Paso Robles. Le Vigne Winery gave her that opportunity as their first Wine Club Manager where she managed to grow the club from 1200 members to 1800 in 9 months! Her prowess did not go unnoticed and soon found herself at Bianchi Winery down the road streamlining their wine club and events. Three years later we are excited to welcome Kelsey on board as our new Direct to Consumer Coordinator. She is very eager to be a part of our team and for the big changes coming our way with the Broken Earth brand and location.
In her free time Kelsey enjoys going to the beach with her dog, working out at the gym, playing shuffle board or cornhole with friends, snowboarding in the winter, and hiking and being on the lake in the summer, binging her favorite TV shows on Netflix and going to the movies. She continues to practice her love of food, wine, spirits and beer with all the amazing options we have here on the central coast and will soon be a WSET certified employee. She loves sharing and learning new things about wine and the industry every day, so come in to the tasting room and say hello to our new teammate!
