About Our FounderKatherine Martin (who goes by Katt) is an energetic woman with an avid interest in all things wine. She was first introduced to wine in one of her first jobs as a college student, at a wine and liquor store in Tennessee. There she was lucky enough to meet a wonderful distributor who brought her a bottle of wine and a pizza every Wednesday...and what better way to win the heart and soul of a college student than free food and wine?
Already a gastronomist, Katt was fascinated by the complexities of wine and food pairings, and began bringing home bottles of wine for blind tastings with her roommates and friends. Through regular tastings and discussions with distributors, Katherine spent several years of learning about wine.
After moving to Atlanta and eventually becoming a reinsurance broker, Katt began attending tastings and classes around the city of Atlanta and eventually began assisting wine classes at The Cooks Warehouses after work. When her friends began to resist her constant quest for new wines, she sought out a new avenue for meeting people willing to spend time exploring and learning about wine. It was at this time that she discovered the Atlanta Wine Meetup, then a fledgling new meetup on Meetup.com started by Chick Wells in 2006. She joined the club, and drawing upon her experience with building an active club from her many years as President of the Atlanta Outdoor Club, she offered to join Chick and help develop new events for the club. In time, Chick stepped down from running the meetup, and Katt took over in 2008.
I wanted to learn about wine for years but was really turned off by the "Snobbery" surrounding the scene. That all changed when I found Wine Xplorer! Love this place!
The best place in Dunwoody GA to enjoy a glass of wine. Hands down.
