Kennady Funk Dunlap

Tasting Room & Wine Club Manager


I was born and raised in Walla Walla, Washington and attended Washington State University, where I graduated with a degree in Social Sciences.

I truly believe that Basel Cellars offers world-class wine accompanied by unprecedented customer service. I love working at Basel Cellars because of the fun and friendly customers I get to meet and the fantastic team of people I get to work with that bring our vision to life every day!

Growing up in the heart of Washington wine country, I learned to appreciate the magic of good food and wine at a young age. I was fortunate to work at Basel Cellars as a Tasting Room Associate during college, but then left to finish my degree in Pullman. When I returned to Walla Walla and decided to pursue a career in the wine industry, I was overjoyed at the opportunity to return to Basel Cellars as the Tasting Room Manager. I truly believe that we have the very best team of people, from the vineyard and winery, to the tasting room and estate house; there is absolutely no place I would rather work!

I have a beautiful and energetic two year-old daughter. She keeps me laughing and busy every single day. When I’m not working at Basel Cellars you can find me relaxing with family and friends, sharing laughs and good wine.

I look forward to sharing my knowledge and passion for wine with you!
