Somm-antic Drift

Michaela comes by way of Chicago where she fell in love with wine while bartending at Roister (part of the Alinea Group). After deciding to pursue her wine education, she transitioned to the Sommelier team at Alinea, where she worked up until July 2020. Her long-term goal was always to move to the Napa Valley. When the city shut down due to COVID-19, and an opportunity to do a harvest internship at Schramsberg came up, her plans were accelerated. Michaela joined the sommelier team at PRESS last year part-time, while also joining the education team at the The Napa Valley Reserve as an educator until March 2021. Now she is officially the Assistant General Manager at PRESS!
