Kimberly Bernosky

By some accident, Kimberly Bernosky was born in the state of Delaware. At fifteen she realized her grandfather’s dream and migrated to Oregon with her family. She went to Oregon City High School and then onto Portland State University. After a few stints at ‘real jobs’ she started working as a server for the McMenamin’s brewpub chain. In 1992, the McMenamin brothers gave her a job in their new winery and tasting room. Her love of wine took root. After traveling to Napa, Walla Walla, France, Italy, Argentina & Chile she opened a retail wine shop store, Beaumont Wines. One day, Courtney walked into Beaumont Wines looking for a job in the wine business. After working together for a few short months, Kimberly knew Courtney was the ‘one’ with whom to open a wine bar and the seed for Noble Rot was planted. Kimberly heavily researches wine flight ideas, “the best way to know wine, is to drink it,” and runs the front of the house with Courtney. She loves to travel and run marathons in any spare time she can find. Kimberly, lives in downtown Portland with her French Bulldog, Chef.
