@Telesomm #SommStory: Kelly Cornett, @ACorkintheRoad

Whether Kelly Cornet is helping people live their best life or helping people discover everything they can about wine, we're glad she made a pit stop to chat with us on the #InVinoFab pod to share about her journey.

Kelly Cornett is a wine consultant and media specialist based in Atlanta, GA with 10+ years of wine industry education and experience. She started her career being mentored by a South African winemaker while managing a winery in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia learning all aspects of wine production and tasting room sales. Since founding A Cork in the Road, LLC in 2018, she has contributed to publications about North Georgia Wine Country, designed multi-course wine pairing dinners for restaurants, hosted 3 seasons of the “A Cork in the Road” podcast, and partnered with retailers to create unique education experiences. She continues to share the joy of all things wine through custom tastings, virtual classes, and Wine vs Beer adventures. Follow and learn from Kelly at: 
"Wine does not live in a vacuum to me. It is connected to social justice, it is political, it is absolutely agricultural, for me wine is my people, it’s my community, it’s my relationship with people. It is how I travel and explore the world." ~Kelly Cornett, A Cork in the Road

Here are just a few of the many things we learned from this wine pro on #InVinoFab:
“For me it’s helping people discover something new. The light bulb that happens when I can help somebody understand something new about wine, no matter where they came from, what they’ve had in the past, they’re able to apply their new knowledge of wine. That’s the best part.” ~Kelly @ACorkintheRoad
