Nicole Retter

Wine has fascinated me for as long as I can remember. Growing up in Baden-Wurttemberg, a good bottle of wine always graced my parents’ table. And from the start, I was just as fascinated with the stories and people behind the wines as with the wines themselves. It’s no coincidence that my path led from a degree in business to the world of food and wine. Today I serve as a sommelière and consultant, and love helping my customers convey their own enthusiasm for wine, the people behind the scenes making the products, the vineyards and the terroir.
