Hi again Wine and Dime listeners. In this episode I chat with Katherine Clark. Katherine is the Director of Advisor Consulting at First Ascent Asset Management. During the episode, we chat about life, religion, financial planning and of course wine. We dive into how Katherine took a big leap of faith when joining First Ascent, and how that risk paid off. Check out the episode with a bottle of your favorite wine and enjoy the show!!
DIRECTOR OF ADVISOR CONSULTING
What I do here:
I work side-by-side with advisors to help them best utilize First Ascent’s strategies and services for their clients. I also collaborate with our communications team to get the word out about First Ascent and the value we bring.
Why I love my job:
I am passionate about being part of a business that makes every decision by asking, “What’s best for advisors and their clients?” My colleagues make coming to work every day fun and intellectually stimulating, and I find great satisfaction in providing significant value to advisors and their clients all across the country.
Tempranillo is a black grape variety widely grown to make full-bodied red wines in its native Spain. Its name is the diminutive of the Spanish temprano, a reference to the fact that it ripens several weeks earlier than most Spanish red grapes.
Lively, medium depth garnet red withan intense pink rim. The nose stands out for the intensity of fresh aromas of ripe red fruit, wild strawberries, currants and raspberries, against a balsamic background with notes of vanilla, toasted caramel, bakery, coffee and sweet mints. Warm aromatic entry, with good structure and balance and soft, amiable tannins. The aromatic harmony persists on the finish, with marked freshness and balance. Long in the mouth, it offers a magnificent expression of classic ageing.
Honey - Mother Nature's Nectar ~ The Oldest Fermented Beverage
Dating back to before 5000 BC, Honey and water were fermented into Mead – now commonly called “Honey Wine”, although some sources indicate Mead is the Oldest Fermented Beverage.
A uniquely different taste than grape wine, it can be dry, semi-sweet or sweet and is found to be refreshing and with the light aroma of honey. For over 25 years, since 1993, the family owned Earle Estates Meadery has offered Mead in many varieties and blends. Its unique nature makes it the perfect blending wine to expand its flavor and taste throughout our production of over 20 Honey wine varieties.
