Weekly Web Update: June 23, 2014
As we continue our series on “Meet The Team”, we’re sure you already know the member of our staff who can most often be found atop our library ladder. Kate M. is our Inventory Manager and (for as much as Jason, our Wine Guru knows about how each one tastes) can find whatever it is you’re after instantly.
Everyone asks about your ‘accent”. Where are you originally from and for how long have you been in Minnesota?
I’m from Belarus and have lived in Minnesota since we immigrated.
When you’re not up the ladder or behind the counter, what do you like to do?
Baking and gardening are my two main hobbies. I also love animals and welcome all pets into Ken & Norm’s with a treat. We don’t have a dog of our own (yet) but are being taken advantage of by our cat named Lilu.
In your four years at Ken & Norm’s, if you could pick one item from the store as your favorite, what would it be? And be honest!
How am I supposed to pick just one item?! Ok, that’s easy. Meiomi Pinot Noir is my favorite and I like to recommend it to all my customers who are looking for a Pinot that I think is yummy.

Vintner’s Notes: Fresh and zesty with a hint of brininess – a perfect pairing for shellfish.
Our Notes: “Light and delicate with a nose of nectarine. The palate is ethereal and wispy with hints of honeydew melon and ‘of the sea’ freshness. Unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before!” ~Jason
