Chris Burnell

chrisThose who already know her would agree that there is no one quite like Chris Burnell. Her level of wine knowledge is unparalleled and she always has a smile on her face and takes a genuine interest in every person who steps through our doorway in the Woodinville Tasting Room. It seems only fitting that she steps in as the new Tasting Room Manager in Woodinville.

Chris has seen quite an evolution of the Washington wine industry in her 24 years of experience, ranging from owning a boutique wine shop in Kirkland, to working with wine importers and distributors, to then growing a large wine store in Redmond as the manager for over 8 years.  After a short break, her interest turned to the booming Woodinville wine community where she has worked since 2010.

Chris joined the Pepper Bridge winery and Amavi Cellars in Woodinville in 2012.  She brings a unique perspective, combining experience in Washington wine, knowledge of global wine, and a background in business and finance.
She enjoys meeting people and sharing stories, fishing, great food and travel, family and, of course, puppies.
