Cirque du sommelier

Kristina Petrova

“I forgot my ID!!!” Kristina screams as we are about to cross over the Golden Gate Bridge. I quickly flip a Ueee as we know we will need her identification if we want to have a fun day sipping on lovely wine in Napa today. But flipping is something our Russian born Kristina is all too familiar with. She is a former acrobat performing in Cirque Du Soleil shows as a child. Having to stop due to a back injury. Her parents actively involved in the production of certain Cirque Du Soleil shows. Most of her recent work has been in night clubs. However, she is now trying to launch her acting career. She even has a role in an upcoming Netflix movie which remains a secret as she says “I cant really speak upon…” signing an NDA.

We visit the beautiful Domaine Carneros Winery in Napa on a beautiful day. Her trying to describe and pronounce the different bubbly wines is more comical than anything as you will see. Her sense of humor is refreshing and compliments her stunning fashion model looks. She also discusses her favorite and not so favorite Vodkas.
