Kinsie was born and raised in the Boise area, graduating from Kuna High before going to college at California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly) in San Luis Obispo. When she wasn’t studying, you could find her at one of the local wineries in Edna Valley, California sharing tasting notes with friends and enjoying the sunshine. She quickly knew it was an industry that she was interested in and was able to take an opportunity to work at Tolosa Winery. Here, she further developed her palate, tasting knowledge, and her love of the industry began. After graduating with a degree in Aerospace Engineering, she accepted a job that took her to Los Angeles for two years, then transferred her to Colorado. This is where she met her husband before they both relocated to Boise in the fall of 2021. After leaving her job in Colorado Kinsie decided she wanted to return to the wine industry she had previously fallen in love with. She is excited to be back in her home state and honored to be part of the Telaya team and further expand her wine knowledge.
