Lea, The Lovely Wine Lady
After nearly 10 years in New York City's demanding food and beverage industry, Lea realized that many people share her love of wine, but are somewhat gun-shy about asking questions for fear of being eaten alive by an intimidating sommelier.
Lea's approach to wine is simple: "It's wine, not rocket science. You should love learning what you enjoy sipping, and you should not be afraid to ask questions or try something new."
After working with well-known chefs, Alaine Ducas, Anne Burrel, and Amanda Frietag, Lea became the wine director of a popular Midtown Manhattan wine bar. Here, Lea Faith established an eclectic list of wines from all over the world and hosted regular classes and tastings.
A student of Kevin Zraly, as well as the internationally recognized Society of Wine Educators. Lea - Faith is also a Certified Wine Specialist and will soon be a Certified Wine Educator.
