Michele Gargiulo

Michele got her start at the Culinary Institute of America. After graduation she got her first job as a Sommelier at Savona in Philadelphia. This charming restaurant located on the Main Line of Philadelphia was founded and created by Evan Lambert, one of the founders of The American Sommelier Association and Star Wine. She worked there for four years, hosting weekly wine tastings and monthly wine dinners. During this time, she started working for Angel’s Envy as a Whiskey Guardian, where she worked for three years. From Savona she moved to Steven Starr’s Barclay Prime. Shortly after, she started working at The Four Season’s Jean Georges in Philadelphia, on top of the Comcast building. The COVID 19 pandemic hit, with her there just over a year. Michele moved down to South Carolina to manage a restaurant while the North East was shut down. During the lock-down, Michele wrote her first book: Pairing Paws: Dog Breeds and Their Spirit Wines. Pairing Paws: Cat Breeds and Their Spirit Wines is expected June 2023. She is currently the Wine & Beverage Director at the Fearless Restaurant Group, overseeing 10 restaurants in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
