Somm-antic Drift

Certified Sommelier and Beverage Director at Detroit’s Chartreuse Kitchen & Cocktails, Catherine loves championing her home city and working to elevate the restaurant community that has supported her over the past 15 years. Through running tasting and study groups, she has helped individuals achieve certifications, professional confidence and helped foster close friendships between former strangers. Continued education and exploration are central to her passions; and are the driving force behind her travels abroad and to wine country in France, Greece, and Oregon.

Volunteering both at home and at TEXSOM has been not only a source of joy but has also served as inspiration to find innovative ways to help engagement grow between different areas of the hospitality community through partnerships with local farms, restaurants, and producers
