At Cal Poly, Rosie studied biology and chemistry, in preparation for a career in biotech. Sure, she did most of her studying at a wine bar, and sure, she seemed to know more about wine than she did about molecular interactions. And even after she started working in biotech, she still found herself working in a tasting room. It was just a couple of days a week, merely a side hustle. Then, one day, she succumbed to the inevitable, quit biotech and began her wine-industry career in earnest. Prior to joining Sixmilebridge, Rosie was the direct-to-consumer manager at Brecon Estate.
