  • Leslee is the most approachable sommelier we have ever met. She is a walking wine library yet still makes the whole wine experience very fun, accessible and interesting. She has helped us craft our wines, tweak our brand, and develop a commercial strategy. There isn’t one aspect of the wine industry that Leslee doesn’t tackle and excel at. Cheers to our fabulous friend Leslee! Teresa & Eugenio Meschini, Owners
