Meet the Foxens!
Hi everyone! This is the first in a series of interviews we will be doing with our Foxen staff so you, our lovely fans, can get to know us better!
How long have you been with us at Foxen?
I’ve been working here for about 1 1/2 years.
Which Foxen wine is your personal favorite?
I absolutely LOVE the Tinaquaic Cab Franc. It’s easily my favorite.
What do you love most about wine or being in the wine industry?
I really love wine’s ability to bring people together.
If you had to pick an all time favorite food and wine pairing, what would it be?
Spicy Mexican food with Cab Franc! My favorite dish is Chicken Nachos, with lots of spiciness. Cab Franc has wonderful jalapeno and green pepper notes to it so it pairs great with Mexican cuisine.
Tell us two of your favorite places to eat. Let’s hear one local restaurant and one non-local.
Root 246 in Solvang and The Publican in Chicago.
What do you love most about living in Santa Barbara County?
Lots of things. I’d say mostly it’s the weather, the wine, the food and the people!
Where are some other places that you’ve lived?
I’ve lived in New York, Indiana, and I’m originally from the San Fernando Valley.
If you could live in any wine growing region in the world, where would you choose?
Russian River Valley
Why is that?
It’s beautiful there and they have great wines there. My new favorite brewery is there too, it’s called Russian River Brewing Co. They make sour beers there that are wonderful!
What is your favorite hobby or past time?
Dancing! It’s actually my greatest passion outside of wine. I was a professional dancer for 10 years!
Last but not least. Can you give us one fun fact about yourself that no one else knows?
Mmm…The first concert I ever went to I saw Tom Jones.
That’s awesome. Thank you so much for sharing all of this with us Natty!
Next time you come visit us say hi to Natalie and look out for our next staff profile next Friday. Cheers Friends!
