Andie McKinnon

2022 Fuel Your Dreams Award Winner - NC

Andie moved to Charlotte after living in a small town her entire life. She graduated with a Food Studies degree from UNC Chapel Hill, where an interest for cider became an interest in wine after taking a class that focused on old Southern apples. After completing her certification with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), Andie joined the Foxcroft Wine Company team in February 2021 and has since worked at all three Charlotte locations. Now, she is the Assistant General Manager at Southpark. Also an alum of the UNC Bluegrass Band, Andie loves playing the guitar but secretly wishes she could play the fiddle. When not at Foxcroft, Andie enjoys exploring Charlotte, visiting Farmer's Markets, arranging flowers, and hanging with her pet bird. 

I’m so grateful to have been chosen as a recipient of WOTV’s Fuel Your Dreams Scholarship award! This award will cover the cost of earning my WSET III qualification and would be the first step towards pursuing my ultimate goal of becoming a WSET Educator. I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have had a handful of wonderful mentors whom I could ask any question, no matter how trivial or simple, and that has been invaluable to building my knowledge and confidence. This scholarship will help me grow professionally so that I may pass the same generous mentorship to others.
