I am moving to Austin from Portland, OR in a week and am curious about the wine scene? Bars, study groups, tasting groups, potential jobs etc. I will be brand new to the area and look forward to any networking opportunity, as well making friends with others in the industry! :)
Most of the restaurants and bars in town post jobs to poachedjobs.com. June Rodil runs MMH's beverage program and most of their establishments are classy with a wine focus. The Austin Wine Merchant hosts tastings every Saturday from noon till out, they are located downtown and offer some of the best retail selection in the city. Currently, I am hosting a tasting group on Wednesday nights at 8pm for the Certified level.
Welcome to Austin!
Awesome! Thank you so much :) I would definitely like to join you guys!
Make sure to come to Kell's class if it isn't sold out and I will be teaching a class at the end of May that we will be posting soon.
That would be great! Thank you so much for letting me know. I will be on the lookout for the post and definitely be there.
Thanks, Kelli White!
Molly -- feel free to email me at email@example.com if you have questions. We also have weekly blinds at June's All Day at 1pm, open to the public. They generally go quite fast but you do see quite a few industry people there right at 1pmt to practice, so it can be a nice way to meet people.
Welcome to ATX!
I was about to tell you to make sure to change your state in your profile, but I see you already did! You'll get all future emails about classes taking place in your new region. (:
