Resident Sommelier - Janet Easterling

I was born in Petaluma, California, in the heart of Sonoma wine country. I developed a love and appreciation for  wine, working my way through college at the University of Minnesota, and at French restaurants in Minneapolis. I majored in Political Science and History at the U of MN. I moved to San Antonio in 1989 with my native Texan husband and our son. I worked briefly at Chez Ardid, then spent almost 12 years with Ruths’ Chris Steakhouse where I was the Sommelier and wine buyer.

In 1998 I received my Sommelier Certification from the Court of Master Sommeliers in Scottsdale, AZ. In 2004 I passed my Certified Specialist of Wine exam from the Society of Wine Educators in Dallas, TX. The San Antonio Current Staff chose me as the Best Sommelier in San Antonio in 2004. I have taught wine education classes at several locations in San Antonio. I currently work here at Bergheim Cellars.

I love spending time at my home in Bulverde, TX, with my family and my animals. I feel very lucky that my work is also my passion.
