Sadie has liked wine as far back as she can remember, but it was spending a few summers in France as a kid that she grew accustomed to wine as an essential part of the table. When Sadie delved into this idea as a young adult, she found it embodied in principles of Slow Food. She's passionate about art and the culinary arts, and especially wine — for its infinite styles, experiential aspects, entertainment, sense of unity, and continuity of tradition.
Sadie holds a certificate from the Sommelier Society of America and continues to educate herself amongst the very knowledgeable staff at 67, as well as through individual study and visiting vineyards throughout the world.
