In this episode we had the pleasure of speaking with Wanda Cole-Nicholson, Founder of VinBev. In this episode we speak to Wanda about:
Through her culinary experiences working as a Sommelier, Wanda Cole-Nicholson has been inspired to create pairings that showcase the complexities of different cuisine. She has crafted and implemented beverage list and wine and spirits training programs. Her education includes Advanced Sommelier Certification from The Court of Master Sommelier's and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Missouri in Spanish. She plans to sit for the Master Sommelier exam in 2018.
She has been fortunate to have worked for many of Chicago’s world class establishments and institutions including ¡Salpicón!, Kendall College, Mercat a la Planxa, NaHa, and BR Guest Restaurants. In October of 2009 she created Vinterpretation offering wine consulting, education, and event planning. After several years of working multiple facets of the business with experience in tow, she was inspired to continue the next phase of her consulting career via the creation of Dallas-based VinBev. When not working, studying, or home making, she enjoys tasting wines from all over the world, as well as educating others on the joy of wine and spirits.
