About The Owners of The Wine Lover
Meet the owners of The Wine Lover . . . Yes, they are brothers.
Concierge Sommelier - Wine Consultant - Avid Wine Lover
Serge decided to keep learning about wine and spirits more out of passion than work related. After working for George Hauer of George’s at The Cove, his wine knowledge had grown to point that he wanted to know more and more. Serge then worked for Roy Yamaguchi for over 8 years. He was the wine buyer at Roy’s Ko Olina and Downtown San Diego. He passed his Level One Sommelier through The Court of Masters program in 2009 and then his Certified Sommelier in Portland in July of 2010. Serge now runs the wine program at The Wine Lover in Hillcrest. He specializes in finding wines that are low production, family owned and of good value. He is very passionate about his work and wine and hopes to run more wine programs as a consultant in the near future.
“I know where all my wine comes from, I have visited many winemakers and vineyards to find the best wine for The Wine Lover. Let me show you the way to enjoying better wine. Cheers and Peace.”
Avid Wine Lover - Food Fanatic - Wine Tender
Nick joined in proprietorship of The Wine Lover with a newly rekindled passion for wine and food, ever present and sparked by the philosophy of vineyard to table wine that The Wine Lover boasts under the helm of his older brother Serge.
