Beth left medical school in 1999 to pursue her passion for wine. She began working for a popular New York City wine boutique, honing her ability for finding delicious, reasonably-priced wines and sniffing out the overpriced ones. As her knowledge progressed, so did her appreciation of the wines of Burgundy, Rhône, the Loire Valley, and Piedmont. In 2004, Beth became Wine Director at (now sadly defunct) Total Wine Bar – one of Brooklyn’s first wine bars. In 2008, Beth was tapped to help open one of Harlem’s first wine bars. At the end of 2008, Beth returned to retail – where she continues to enjoy helping customers match their dinner plans with an appropriate wine purchase. At 67Wine, Beth continues her passion for Piedmont by buying Italian white wine for the store. She has led wine tasting workshops throughout New York City and has traveled as far as Jamaica to share her expertise. Beth comes from a long line of excellent family cooks, and when she’s not teaching others about wine, she can be found preparing meals to enjoy with friends and family. She likes the occasional geek wine, but still prefers red and white wines to orange ones.
