After being burnt out on a career in marketing, Bethany decided to make a change and explore a career in something she was truly passionate about – wine! She started working at a small wine shop in her neighborhood, working food & wine events, and reading every wine book she could get her hands on. A mutual friend introduced Bethany to Perrine and her shop and said, this is where you need to be. And in spring of 2016, Bethany joined Perrine’s Team and feels like she has finally found where she belongs. She loves it when she gets to know a customer’s wine preferences and feels very rewarded when they tell her she picked out the perfect wine for their occasion. Bethany passed her Introductory Sommelier Exam in February 2017 and passed the Certified Sommelier Exam in January 2018 with the highest grade in her class!
“The best bottle of wine I have ever had is the 1999 Billecart Salmon Clos St. Hilaire. I am pretty much always in the mood for Champagne or interesting bubbles. Other favorites include Oregon Pinot Noir, Beaujolais, Loire Valley (pretty much all of it), Txakolina, and reds from Jura.”
