Turning the Page: Knead Wine

The right wine for you- 6 bottles for just $34.99!

Quick announcement!

Yesterday was my last day at Wegmans Wine. I’m starting a new chapter.

I’m super excited to announce that I will be working with Master Sommelier and chef, Jarad Slipp, at his new venture, Knead Wine, in Middleburg, Virginia.  Opening in early August, Knead Wine will offer craft pizzas to-go (no seating), and an expertly curated retail wine list.  Don’t worry, I won’t be the one cooking the pizzas. The wine concept is super interesting — one wall of the shop is wines that are all $20, the other wall is wines that are all $45.  Additionally, there will be a rotating “best of a particular region” nook.  

I met some wonderful people at Wegmans, and I learned a great deal about the retail wine world, what sells in America, and what the American public likes to drink. But it’s time for me to move on — it’s not an ending, just the point in my story where I turn the page.

Here’s to new challenges and opportunities!
