The daughter of PBW Tasting Room Associate Rosanna, Cristina was also born and raised in Walla Walla. She left temporarily to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Forensic Science from Hilbert College in New York, followed by a master’s degree in Forensic Psychology from California Baptist University. She is currently working towards a doctorate degree in Clinical Psychology.

After devoting 8 years at the Washington State Penitentiary working in the Education Department as a Program Coordinator then promoting to Education Navigator, Cristina decided it was time for her to expand to something with further potential for development and growth and employ her hospitality experience and wine knowledge that she gained while working part-time at Pepper Bridge Winery for the past 4 years.

She has always valued that Pepper Bridge Winery is family-run, and when the Tasting Room Manager position became available, she wasted no time in applying and is excited to start this new journey with the company.

Cristina loves dogs and is the very best Pepper Bridge Winery dog greeter. She enjoys spending time with family and her own two dogs.
