Employee Spotlight- Taylor, Tasting Room ManagerDecember 21, 2017
1. Where were you born and raised?
I was born in LA but my family moved to Paso Robles when I was two. I graduated from Paso Robles High School and went to college at UCSD. After I graduated, I moved back to the area. I love the small town feel and the slower pace of SLO county. It is also one of the most beautiful places!
2. To you, what makes your job as tasting room manager so special?
I have a cool job for a variety of reasons. I feel very blessed to work at such a beautiful place and with the best people. I enjoy running the tasting room and giving people wonderful experiences. I’m always learning new things and that makes this a dynamic job. I also have wonderful customers and I have grown close to many of them over my years with Still Waters. It’s nice having people remember you and ask about your life!
3. What is your biggest challenge as tasting room manager?
You always must be charming and engaging, even when you’re exhausted! And you never know what’s going to walk through the door… which is both a good and bad thing sometimes! But I’m so fortunate that most of our customers are absolute dreams and love being here!
4. How do you like to spend your days off?
I like to try to recharge on my days off. If I’m feeling virtuous I’ll do all my laundry and do all the cleaning I’ve been putting off. Have lunch with my mom, go to the gym, and read a book. I also have a side business where I do hand lettering! I’m especially busy during wedding season- but I love sharing my favorite hobby and making people’s big day more beautiful! You can check out my work on my Instagram and Facebook- Bauble and Twig Lettering!
5. If you had to choose one red and one white to drink for the next month, what would it be?
Does sparkling wine count as a white? Because I’d choose a nice dry sparkling wine any day for ever and ever, amen! As for red… I choose our Reflections because it’s smooth, bright and deliciously flavored!
