About Ryan Smith

Ryan Smith, DTC Manager and Certified Sommelier, knew he wanted to work in wine after tasting a 1985 Salon Champagne while working in the kitchen of a local wine bar. His aim to is “demystify” the world of wine through Testarossa’s education department in order to increase people’s enjoyment and to establish a connection to the land and growers that make our business possible. In his spare time, Ryan enjoys drinking wine, mountain biking, and constantly reorganizing his massive record collection a la High Fidelity.
