About Your Hosts:
Jake and Jesse have been inside the New York City food and wine industry for decades. They are also good friends who have strong opinions and love to talk, teach and drink all things wine. Jake ran his first beverage program at 22 years old. He has since overseen all kinds of beverage programs; from the fast casual in a mall to the multi-Michelin starred. Most recently, he was National Beverage Director at David Chang’s Momofuku Restaurant Group. Jesse has been described as one of the ‘hardest working’, ‘best-connected’ guys in wine. He has held almost every job in the industry; from a busboy in Columbus, OH to selling fancy wines to celebrities in New York City. He has tasted tens of thousands of wines and can tell you not only about the taste, but about the story behind the bottle.
