Wines with grace
Grace Hood is a certified sommelier with over a decade of experience in the wine industry. In the past 13 years, she has worked in every facet of the industry, giving her a wide range of wine knowledge, as well as domestic and international hospitality experience.
All starting with a summer job during college pouring in a tasting room in New York, her career has taken her all over the country and the world; the Michelin star countertops of Manhattan, the white linen tablecloths of Texas, the cellars of the Willamette Valley, the world-premiere cellars of Napa Valley, the bustling madness of Ho Chi Minh City, the sun drench vineyards of Santa Barbara and the snow-capped mountaintops of Vail. She has also taken her work to the world wide web, working for Wine.com as a recommendations specialist, as well as developing her own virtual tasting and educational webinars for private and corporate clients.
On top of her experience in wine, she has spent more than half of her life in the events and hospitality industry, catering high-end events in the Hamptons during high school and moving into corporate events in college. She has been a lead bartender/mixologist for countless events in the Southern California area, and brings an expert level of knowledge in all things food, beverage and event coordination.
Whether virtual or in-person, Grace provides sommelier and mixology services at all types of events:
