Your Personal Wine & Food Consultant
Clare, Certified Chef, Le Cordon Bleu
I needed to take the time to update this page, since I am no longer new at Bella Vino. I am the General Manager and Buyer for Bella Vino.
A bit about me: Simply put I LOVE WINE!!! However, my passion really lies with the combination of food and wine together. I am a certified chef, accredited with the Le Cordon Bleu certification and classically trained in the culinary arts. I am also a food & wine consultant and have another business. I left the "Back of the House", because I am also what people call "A Front of the House Person". What does that mean exactly? It means that I really enjoy discovering what people’s needs and wants in wine are and providing them with a wine that is the perfect match for their palate.
I personally taste every wine I bring into the store and am confident that whatever your palate may be, we have several golden gems to dance on your tongue.
I am interested in making customers for life, not a one-time sale.
In addition to wine, I also personally taste every specialty beer, we bring into the store.
I would also love to know what kind of wine and beer events pique your interest. Is it tasting new varietals or meeting talented Wine makers? Are you interested in wines of exotic travel destinations or learning about delicious food and wine pairings? I want to make Bella Vino your destination of choice for expanding your knowledge of wine.Email me directly anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by the shop and tell me a little about what kind of wines you like, and I'd be happy to make personal recommendations based on your individual preferences. I'll even recommend recipes to go along with the wonderful wine you have chosen.
