Meet our Employee
Kim Underwood

If you have visited the tasting room recently, you probably have met Kim’s bright smile behind the tasting bar. 

What is your favorite part about your job? 
I love the opportunity to share my passion for wine with our customers. Taking customers on a trip around the world with Brian's wines and describing the styles they reflect is one of the best parts of my job. I love the chance to create a unique and fun experience for each customer, which most typically involves adopting one of my specially customized accents to describe the wines. The great group of people at BCC is the icing on the proverbial cake, or perhaps more appropriately, the cheese to enjoy with the wine!

What attracted you to work for Brian Carter Cellars?
Brian Carter is a pioneer in the Washington wine world and remains someone who is highly respected amongst his peers and those who know his wines. Who wouldn't relish the opportunity to work with one of the best winemakers in Washington!

What is your favorite Brian Carter Wine?
Ask anyone in the tasting room - it is no secret that I have a very special place in my heart for Corrida.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I'm addicted to traveling and am always planning my next adventure. Most recently, I was in Ireland, a beautiful country which exceeded my expectations. I love to be active and spend time hiking, snowshoeing, skiing, scuba diving and walking my pups with my husband. We have a cabin in Mazama (the Methow Valley) where I get the opportunity to do a lot of my favorite things.

What would people be surprised to know about you?
Couldn't decide between the fact that I was on the drill team in high school or that I am an attorney. I guess the fact that I'm an attorney is more surprising since anyone who knows me probably figures I am the type who would have been the goofy girl on the drill team.

Tell us a little bit about your family?
My husband is originally from England. Although beer is his favorite beverage, he is a willing participant in my many wine escapades. I have two beautiful daughters; my eldest is a project manager for a digital presentation design company in Seattle while my youngest is in her second year of law school in San Diego. #proudmama, my family, also includes two wonderful pups - a Siberian Husky and a rescue "mutt" that my daughter says reminds her of the street dogs she would see while traveling in Mexico.
