Meet the Foxens! Classy lady #2

Hello again everyone! Hope you are warm or enjoying the winter weather where ever you are! We quite frankly are enjoying all this much needed rain!!! This week we have a rock solid employee interview for your enjoyment. This week it’s Cecelia!

Hi CeCe! So glad I’m finally getting to highlight you.
Oh, thank you.CeCe2

What do you do here at Foxen?
I work full time in the Tasting Room and I’ve been here for about 1 1/2 years.

You definitely are a staple holding us together. In your time at Foxen have you picked out any favorite wines?
Well, I love our Julia’s Pinot Noir, and the Tinaquaic Cab Franc can’t be beat. Both are just so good.

What is it that you love most about wine?
I love sharing wine with friends, and how pairing the right wine with the right food can be like magic!

Speaking of food and pairings, do you have an all time favorite?
I had these Lamb Lollipops paired with our Tinaquaic Syrah. That one really stands out in my mind!
THAT is an interesting food pairing!
Yeah, haha, it was a lot of fun.

Do you have a favorite restaurant in the area that you love to frequent?
Trattoria Ulliveto in Old Orcutt is my favorite local restaurant. I always order the Pumpkin Ravioli in butter sage cream sauce.
Do you have a favorite restaurant that isn’t local?
The Lido in Dolphin Bay up in Shell Beach is great. I love it.

If you could pick a grape varietal that best represents your personality, what would it be and why?CeCe1
Sangiovese because its bold and spicy!
That’s awesome Ce.

What do you love most about living and being in Santa Barbara County?
Well, it’s my home. I was raised here, my family and friends are here. I just love it!

Where else have you lived besides the Central Coast?
I’m a California girl. I’ve lived in Los Angeles and Fresno.

If you could live in any wine growing region where would you choose and why?
Tuscany, for sure. It’s the most beautiful place I’ve ever been.
You’ve been to Tuscany?! Now I’m jealous!

Outside of wine, what is your greatest passion?
My husband.
CeCe, you’re so sweet!

Do you have any hobbies or a favorite pastime at the moment?
My husband, John, is trying to teach me golf. I’m having a lot of fun with it, and it gives us another opportunity to hang out with each other.

Do you and John have any pets together?CeCe3
Sadly, no. But I do love Jack the Shack Cat. He’s a character and is so much fun to hang out with.

Here’s a fun question, do you have a fun fact for us that no one else knows about you?
Mmmm, I guess it’s safe to say that I’m addicted to watching “The Real Housewives: Beverley Hills.”

Final question, if you could have any super power, what would it be?
I’d really love to be able to fly around like Superman. Who wouldn’t love that?

Too true! Thank you so much for your time this week CeCe.
My pleasure.

Next time you come visit us check in at the Shack to see CeCe with Jack and maybe even catch up on last weeks episode of the Real Housewives! We’ll be back next week with a new staff profile! Cheers friends!
