Having grown up with parents that don’t drink, the fact that I’m now buying and selling wine — at the best wine store in the world — is a little hard to believe. However, my passion for the wine business began back while I was still attending Medgar Evers College and held a job as a stock worker.
Back then, I had little to no knowledge of wine. After doing some independent research, though, I came to realize that the wine business was more about drinking wine, but also about culture. I eventually attended the Harriet Lembeck Wine and Spirits Program, and after receiving my certificate, I was promoted to a sales position here at 67 Wine.
Like anyone else, starting at the bottom and working my way up has helped me become successful. Although I’ve only been in the wine business for four years, I’ve gained a real passion for it. For the foreseeable future, I look forward to the fascinating challenge of learning about (and drinking) both Argentinean and French wines, as well as sake.
