Sommelier // Restaurateur
Aaron got his first introduction to the world of wine at the young age of sixteen. “I was having dinner at my bestest buddy's parents’ house, and I sipped a little Mon-te-pul-ci-ano!” he says. “A wine I have come to respect and understand, but at the time it simply tasted wonderful." Aaron now co-owns and serves as the sommelier at a nationally recognized and award-winning restaurant in Denver.
