Wine Sommelier CoM Lvl 2
Cigar Sommelier CCST
I’ve enjoyed wine for as long as I can remember! I’ve enjoyed attending tasting events for years, which led me to want to know more about the various versions of “sunlight held together by water”(Galileo). Wine tends to be talked about in ways that leave many people out of the discussion. I am currently certified (through the National Wine School) as a Level 2 Sommelier and am working on my Level 3 certification.
I also hold my CCST (Certified Cigar Sommelier Tobacconist through Tobacconist University). I started enjoying cigars as a part of a “boys club” in my previous career and this enjoyment has led me down this curious road. I have always had a penchant for at least looking down the road less traveled, and often enough I do a little exploring.
I am a HUGE advocate for local and smaller businesses- the big dogs get all the press (and recognition), the little guys need a chance to shine- and I hope to help shine a spotlight on some smaller projects of love and passion.
