Karin Rockstad

Meet our newest instructor. "Karin is a freelance Spanish-English translator, specializing in wine translation.

Her fascination with wine began with stolen sips of her parents' Riunite Lambrusco and Mogen David back in the 70s. True love struck as Rioja while a student in Spain in the 80s. The love affair has only gotten stronger over the years through extensive travel and study. She's visited 35 countries: most of them multiple times, and most of them wine-producing. One of her most memorable trips was to the Margaret River and Great Southern appellations in Western Australia. The sheer beauty of these remote and hostile landscapes still takes her breath away.


Karin holds wine qualifications from WSET (Level 3) and the Wine Scholar Guild (Spanish Wine Scholar and French Wine Scholar)."
