Master Sommelier Brian Cronin began his wine career in Raleigh, North Carolina. After studying biology in college, Brian realized that he wanted to make wine. However, it was his exposure in restaurants to wines from all over the world and his growing passion for wine that made him want to learn everything that he possibly could. Brian then went to work as sommelier in some of the top restaurants in the country. He has been the wine director for Charlie Trotter's, Gary Danko, and Aqua. Brian is a very active member of the Court of Master Sommeliers and has also been an elected member of their Board of Directors. Brian's diverse career in the wine industry has helped him build his philosophy of fresh, funny and informative education that he now uses as National Education Manager for Palm Bay International. Brian devotes much of his spare time to running marathons' for charity with the American Cancer Society, which includes the Chicago Marathon (his favorite he's run 3 times, about to be 4), Boston Marathon and Paris. In 2016 he'll be running Tokyo, London, Boston, Berlin, Chicago, and NYC marathons. Best thing about the race..."Finishing, eating great food, and drinking great wine! But most importantly is the people that will benefit from this wonderful cause.
