Kaysie Rogers came into the wine world after a successful career as a pastry chef. While traveling around the world to give master classes and compete on Food Network Challenge shows she would make excursions to nearby wine regions where she caught the wine bug. Considering wine as another adventure and career, she returned to Seattle, passed the CMS Intro, Certified, and Advanced exams in short order, and began the WSET Diploma program. First working as a sommelier at Wild Ginger and The Metropolitan Grill in Seattle, she recently joined the wine team at HMF – The Breakers in West Palm Beach working with their Grand Award-winning list. Looking to the future, she hopes to run a wine program and pursue her Master Sommelier accreditation.
