Bitten by the “wine bug” in 1993 while serving a dinner of the Confrérie de la Chaîne des Rôtisseurs hosting Corrine Mentzelopolous from Chateau Margaux. Being tremulously fortunate to have tasted through 10 vintages from 1900 – 1990, Scotty never looked back and committed to steep himself in all things oenophilic.
Certified by the Court of Master Sommeliers in 1999 he has recently retired his “snowbird Sommelier” spurs and is currently the Beverage / Service Director of Bluebird London in NYC and has been the Wine and Service Director for Goodfellow’s Wine Cellar on Mackinac Island, The Plaza Hotel, SD26, The Muse Hotel / Times Square, the Nantucket Golf Club, Chatham Inn & Wine Bar, Truluck’s Naples and Café’ Kandahar in Whitefish, Montana.
Scotty took part in the inaugural year of the Sommeliers Choice Awards and has been the winner of the Banfi trip as well as the Wine Australia / USA Sommelier Immersion Program trip to Australia and has judged the starChefs.com SOMM Slam Competition three times as well as the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers of America Competition.
