Junior Wine Buyer


Tara Pray’s recent move to Napa was a a significant change considering she was born, raised, and has lived in New York State her whole life. After graduating from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, Tara worked in social services in New York City. Her transition to the wine industry was propelled by a passion for travel, food, and wine regions of the world. She has completed levels 1 and 2 of the WSET, as well as her spirits certification. Tara went on to become the Associate Buyer for Morrell & Company where she developed a love of Washington State and Rhone Valley wines.
Now truly bicoastal, Tara enjoys exploring her new state one tasting room at a time, or otherwise enjoying classic movies, trying new restaurants, and attending yoga classes.
