Meet the Foxens! She’s our special lady!
This week we have someone very special, as well as someone you all know and love already. The one and only Moselle!
What do you do here at Foxen?
I am the Wine Club Ambassador and I rock the tasting rooms as well.
How long have you been with us?
Eleven years…and then some.
That is impressive! In all those years have you chosen a favorite Foxen wine?
Julia’s Pinot Noir. She my sexy lady!
What do you love most about wine?
It’s ability to tell a story. Wine encompasses chemistry, geography, history and art. It’s amazing how winemakers can make such different wines from some of the same grapes. It’s their canvas.
Mo, you are definitely our resident foodie. Do you have a favorite food and wine pairing?
I have a bit of a sweet tooth, so I love Strawberry Shortcake with Foxen’s Late Harvest Viognier.
Good thing summer is almost here. That sounds lovely!
What are your favorite local and non-local restaurants?
Oh, Ballard Inn for sure as my favorite local restaurant. I love Farallon in San Fransisco too.
What grape varietal best represents your personality and why?
Pinot Noir. Not only is it my favorite grape varietal, it’s the diva of all grapes! It can exude everything from funkadelic to delicacy and finesse. It thrives in only the most particular places in the world and only the most skilled winemakers and farmers can master it!
Could not have said that better myself!
What do you love most about living in Santa Barbara County?
The farm to table, fresh, local food and all of the award winning wines!
Where are some places you’ve lived besides the Central Coast?
Marin County. Another Pinot wine growing region, I was so close to Russian River!
If you could choose to live in any wine growing region in the world, where would you choose and why?
I’d go right back up to Russian River, specifically Headlesberg. It’s so beautiful up there, and Pinot…need I say more?
Outside of wine, what is your biggest passion?
Jewelry! If I could pick a different job I would be an AJP, Accredited Jewelry Professional.
What is your favorite hobby or pastime?
Hehehe, Cooking! And I watch Jewelry Television.
Give us one fun fact about you that no one else knows about you.
I’m a performer! In middle schoold I was in a lot of plays, my favorite rolls were Ursula in the Little Mermaid, and Baloo the Bear in the Jungle Book. I was in the Central Coast Drill Team in high school. We performed in the Rose Parade in Pasadena. I was a Soul Train dancer in College!
Last question, if you could have any super power what would it be and why?
To see the future for one week. That’s all I’d need to hit the Powerball!
Haha, as always, thanks for being you MoMo. You’re awesome!
Anything for you!
Next time you come visit us make sure you say hi to Mo and tell her how beautiful she is with all of her jewelry! We’ll have another Foxen staff profile next week for you! Cheers friends!
