Dr. Kit A. Singh, D.D.S., a dentist by profession, first discovered his love for wine in college, but it wasn't until he explored Europe’s most notable wine regions in France as well as spending time in Napa and Sonoma where he became fascinated with the artistic process of winemaking. After reading nearly every book on winemaking he could find, Kit enrolled in the Wine Production (Winemaking) program at South Seattle College's Northwest Wine Academy in 2009 to study viticulture and enology. He also studied at the University of California at Davis' winemaking program. During this time Kit created his own brand called Lauren Ashton Cellars, inspired by his two children, Ashley Lauren and Ashton Troy.
