Personal Wine Consultant
I will be your personal consultant for all things wine-related! My roots are in restaurants and hospitality. I have a vast amount of both front and back-of-the-house experience working in some of the best restaurants. Service is at the core of who I am and what I do. This is what I draw upon to help plan and execute a private event at your home, organize pairings for a dinner, plan a focused tasting of rare wines, or whatever else you require to expand your wine footprint.
VINCARIOUS KNOWS WINE
My style and approach to wine reflects my humble roots and salt of the earth charm that allow me to interact with clientele in a language that illuminates and clarifies the mysteries of wine. Intuitively, I embark with my clients on a journey of self-discovery that transcends beyond just that of wine. Unveiling the uniqueness of each individual, I am able to pinpoint and fine-tune a selection of wines that best fits the personality and lifestyle of my clients.

"I met Giordana as J. Baldwins during a wine tasting because some may say a somm's best friend is a chef's palate. We tasted wine together, realizing our love for exploring vintage champagnes was shared, and one of us was just as much of a hospitality nerd as the other. Giordana and I now explore new vintage champagnes together each month and maybe a few other wines too, expanding our friendship beyond the wonderful world of juice."
