Since the mid 2000s, I have spent most of my time in the wine and spirits trade. Save a one year hiatus where I lived in Monterey, CA a mere six blocks from the ocean. It was fantastic to say the least. However, the lack of all four seasons and a decent employment rate had me itching to come back to the homeland.
Shortly after my return I was hired as a driver at The Wine Company in early March of 2015. In my time here I have been through coursework through the Wine & Spirit Education Trust and thanks to all the great people at The Wine Company I have steadily seen an increase in what I know.
Now as a sales rep, I am excited to build upon this and share my enthusiasm for all wine and spirits -not least Condrieu, a favorite wine among the unsung heroes that make our portfolio such a treat to drink and such a joy to share with the world.
When I’m not working I pass the time at my cabin fishing, relaxing and generally being outside in the summer months. When winter comes I hunker down with my dog, Bender a nice stout and a good book….I’m always on the prowl for what I should read next. Any suggestions?
