Who is “The Grape Gabbler”?
My name is Katrina Alameda. I’ve always enjoyed storytelling, so naturally, I majored in Literature and Writing in college. I’ve worked nearly all front house positions at fine-dining and boutique/ultra-lounge style restaurants for 10 years. I currently live in Southern California with my family and Miniature Schnauzer.

About the title
I always imagined a life with Champagne spewing fountains—pretty much why I’ve named this blog after
The Great Gatsby
. I love grapes, and I definitely love to gabble.
