about us

We are not all alike… We don’t dress the same. We have many different mother languages. We don’t listen to the same music, and we come from all over the world, from all walks of life… but we all love history, a great story, to travel and discover, and the beauty of the culture of the ‘table.’ We love to laugh, yeah, at times we can get loud. We care immensely about one another and our producers. We are a family. We love our clients. Then… Wine… we love wine.

I am a father and husband, a son/brother, a friend, and a wine professional (in that order). Although I may be classified as a rep, or a suit, or a salesman, I’ve never considered myself any of those. I am a storyteller.

Always having enjoyed wine, it wasn’t until my first, of many, trips to Italy in my early 20’s that I truly saw the artistry and beauty in a glass. It was also on that first trip that I went to visit Summer Wolff, who was working for a producer in Tuscany at the time. Seeing

Nina Murphy

Wine Consultant – Oregon

I was raised by a family of San Francisco wine lovers: that Napa-adjacent, Parker-taught generation that held wine dinners, wine picnics, and pontificated on wine scores. For the first 31 years of my life, this experience defined wine, and I wasn’t interested in letting it define me. I felt wine was inaccessible, uniform, and man-made. But in my 32nd year, everything changed.

I’ve been slinging wine in one way or another quickly approaching two decades now. I started out in restaurants, as a part time temporary job. That evolved to retail, and then wholesale. When all is said and done what has kept me here…

Ayana Ibarra

NY Office Manager

My love for travel, food and wine is a result of my family, who encouraged me to go everywhere and try everything from a young age.

My first job was as a hostess, and it taught me that I enjoy making other people feel good. When I got to college, I pursued marketing for the same reason –
