Kati Focareto

Director of Hospitality and Events

If there was a queen of perfection at Ponzi, Kati would reign. As the Director of Hospitality and Events, Kati has mastered the art of thinking on her feet. In a moment’s notice she can wistfully relocate outdoor events inside, setting and resetting the tables when parties go from 40 to 50 guests and back again, all with a bright smile and her naturally cheery disposition shining through.

A life-long lover of literature, when Kati entered the wine industry she began reading every book under the sun to learn more about wine and quickly soaked up the knowledge... and lots of delightful wine along the way.

Every once in a while, Kati enjoys a time out from the wine world to play with her three spunky Vizslas and relax with her husband. Kati finds pleasure in the outdoors, especially hiking the Columbia River Gorge, swimming in Hawaii and daydreaming about a view of the Mediterranean from a sunny patio in Greece; crisp glass of wine, homemade Caprese salad and birds chirping overhead to top it off.
