Meet Your Hosts

Bethe Hattara

Chief Tasting Officer

I am a child of Lake Minnetonka.  I grew up in this area and have seen alot of change over the years.  I’ve traveled quite a bit and lived around the country, but returned here 20 years ago and planted permanent roots.  I love Minnesota, and more specifically, the Lake Minnetonka area!  I’m a wife, mom, and grandma.  I have two Australian Shepherds who I adore!  Professionally,  I have done everything from managing  corporate event and developing marketing strategies to raising  organic chickens and eggs! My passions are travel, music and food.  I love to meet new people and hear their stories – especially over a great meal.

I’m a Jersey girl with a taste for Wayzata.  My life is full and rewarding as a mother, a social worker and as a professional volunteer.  Family, friends and delicious food is my menu for a perfect evening.  Trying new restaurants and exploring different cities, locally and abroad, is the recipe for a delightful vacation.  Food tours, wine tasting and brewery stops give me the flavor of a town and a taste of the local culture.


Wayzata has been, and remains, a favorite place for my family beginning with a day at the beach, then a stop for ice cream, and ending with a trolley car ride.  Now, Wayzata provides excellent people and dog watching, regatta racing, boating, shopping, and of course, eating!  We enjoy it all.  Wayzata is an example of all that is great about Minnesota:  Stunning lake views, friendly people, lots of outdoor activities, gorgeous sunsets and amazing restaurants.
