BIO

Known for her relaxed style of wine education, Cara Patricia's motto is 'Drink for Yourself', a reminder that regardless of the trends and fads of the beverage world, what is most important is what makes YOU happy. Cara has been specializing in wine and beverage since 2008, and over the next 10 years she built a career in hospitality as a restaurant sommelier, operator, cellar master, import sales manager, and Champagne specialist for luxury brands. In 2019, Cara became an owner-operator by co-founding DECANTsf, a sustainable wine bottle shop & bar, combining hospitality, education, and curated selections for the every day drinker. Somehow within all this time, Cara passed her Court of Master Sommeliers Advanced Exam, as well as got a handful of other certifications. (She/Her)
