This month we are highlighting the women behind 32 Winds Wine in celebration of International Women’s Day. Many of you know that our team at 32 Winds is small but we are mighty! The women here make up the majority of that small team, each bringing their own unique strengths to the table and contributing to the success of 32 Winds.

Continuing our series of highlighting the women at 32 Winds, here is Emi Curtis.

Emi Curtis of 32 Winds Wine

Born and raised in West Sonoma County, it’s no wonder Emi ended up in the wine industry. She joins us with a passion for wine, marketing, social media and all things Sonoma County.  At 32 Winds, she is our digital marketing and social media maven.

To get to know her a little better we asked her a few questions:

What drew you to Sonoma County?

I was actually born and raised in Sonoma County! It is and always will be home for me. There really is no other place like it in the country and I’m extremely privileged to live here.

What is your favorite part of your job?

I love being involved in so many different aspects of 32 Winds. Everything from bottling days, waxing magnums, waking up at 4am to take photos of harvest, tasting through the wines with Matt Taylor and the team and visiting vineyard sites to creating email marketing campaigns, shooting content for our website and social media accounts, and working closely with the team to come up with fun ideas to market our wine. I love it all!

What is your favorite wine varietal?

Pinot Noir hands down. And even more specifically, Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. Have your tried ours yet??

How do you like to spend your days off?

Exploring Sonoma County with my husband and two dogs. Anything outside. Beach days. Eating my way through my long list of favorite restaurants. Visiting new breweries. Hiking. Cooking. Spending time with friends and family.

What is your favorite restaurant in Sonoma County?

That’s such an unfair question! I can’t pick just one. Bravas Bar de Tapas is at the top of my list (try the octopus!). I also love Sushi Kosho at the Barlow in Sebastopol as well as Underwood in Graton for some incredible authentic Thai food.
