Sommelier Steph is back with an exciting wine tasting featuring Old World/New World wines! Join us for the first in a 2-part series of tasting comparing wines produced in traditional wine growing areas in Europe with the same type of wine produced in a New World growing area in the Americas, Africa or Australia. Enjoy great wines, great food (each set of wines comes with a hand-picked food pairing) and a fascinating exploration of terroir! The first session will focus on white wines. COVID Certificate Required.
About Sommelier Steph
After devoting 17 years to emergency and critical care veterinary nursing, Steph decided to leave medicine and turn her much loved wine hobby into a second career. She began working at a Finger Lakes winery where she immersed herself in every aspect of wine making: vineyard experience, harvest and crush, and the tasting room where she honed her skills in food and wine pairing. While working in the winery, she joined a company which provided small, semi-private, educational wine tours within the FLX region. Within this time she also became beverage manager and wine captain of a high-end catering company, where she was able to continue her work with local winemakers in putting together tasting menus for private events.
She obtained her sommelier training through The Court of Master Sommeliers and is a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. She worked as a member of the sommelier team at Les Trois Rois, a 5-star hotel in Basel, where she served as the bar sommelier and bar supervisor, before the COVID-19 pandemic led to a return to veterinary medicine.
She lives in Muttenz with her husband Richard, her dog Gracie, and her super adorable kitty Mister.
