Katie Roisen

Marketing Director

Q: Briefly tell us about your journey to the Finger Lakes wine industry and to Lamoreaux Landing . A: I moved to the area after meeting my now-husband, winemaker Aaron Roisen. I have a background in the production and marketing of high-end womenswear and I found there were a lot of parallels between that world and hand-crafted, estate wine. Lamoreaux Landing is the benchmark for that style of wine... plus they make wine I like to drink!

Q: What is you favorite variety to drink? A: Riesling - I love how versatile it is and I especially love it dry and full of minerality.

Q: What is your favorite local restaurant and what is you favorite thing to eat there? A: Thai Elephant for the Green Curry.

Q: Where would you travel if you knew you would have to stay there for up to a year? A: The Italian countryside.

Q: Name a song that always gets you on the dance floor. A: Shotgun by Junior Walker, I Was Made To Love Her by Stevie Wonder… anything Motown

Q: If you could use just one condiment for the rest of the year what would it be. A: Sour Cream

Q: If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why? A: Richard Avedon. He was a pop culture photographer and experienced so much of the 20th century behind his camera. He had a creative mind and he saw so much, I imagine he would be a fascinating person to speak with.

Q: If you could bring back any fashion trend what would it be? A: Platforms! You get all the height without wearing heels.

Q: What movie have you seen recently that you would recommend and why? A: Ford v Ferrari. It's a great story about perseverance and hard work but also sweet and funny. I love the topic, the aesthetic, and the music.

Q: Who is the most exciting famous person you ever saw or met? A: Jeff Goldblum or Manute Bol
