Hi! My name is Rose Ballantine, I am a 4th year Viticulture and Enology undergraduate student also minoring in Spanish. I grew up in Napa, California. I've had a love for wine and the wine industry for as long as I can remember, but I really became passionate about it through the V&E Department here at Davis. I have a much greater appreciation for where I grew up and cannot wait to continue learning and working to give back to the wine industry in the future. At UC Davis I also play water polo on the Women's Club Water Polo team! We are 2-time National Champions and I'm hoping this year we bring home another title. I will be studying abroad in Mendoza, Argentina this Fall and will be taking Spanish language courses as well as working in a winery. I cannot wait for another exciting year with DEVO and to be more involved as Secretary.
