The Certified Wino

Wine. Hospitality. Food.

In an industry filled with so many passionate, talented professionals, it is a shame that we don't celebrate their stories more often. For me, their journey is far more interesting than the places they end up. Join me as I showcase an array of inspiring hospitality professionals, and wine nerds (my people) & share education on all things wine via my personal brand: "The Certified Wino"

Cheers~
