Staff Sommelier & Wine Collection Curator

Lillian is an experienced and Certified Sommelier. She is also a Certified California Wine Appellation Specialist having spent a lot of effort to get to know California wines in detail. She’s been delighting wine consumers by selecting and serving them for over six years. She not only has extensive knowledge in wine but in cheese as well. Her cheese talents are those of specialists called “Cheese Mongers”. She’s also had many years of retail wine and cheese buying experience for retail shops and wine bars.

Her wine analytical and tasting talents are supported by a strong engineering background. She has several degrees in Engineering and Computer Sciences but found her true love in wine. She loves a wide range of wines but will admit to having a special place in her heart for Burgundy and Champagne.
