Brad grew up in the Naples, Florida area. After school he worked as a waiter and manager in some of the area’s finest restaurants and clubs where his interest in wine began. While working in Utah, at the Sundance Mountain Resort, Brad’s wine interest developed into a passion. Brad was responsible for buying the wine and managing the cellar for all the restaurants at the resort. During this time he began his studies with the Court of Master Sommeliers and has not looked back.

Brad currently holds the Level 2 Certified Sommelier certification with the Court of Master Sommeliers. Brad is also a student with the Wine and Spirit Education Trust and he recently began taking their Level 4 Diploma program.

He is pleased to be back in Naples, working with the outstanding team at Fairways Wine Vault. Brad is extremely excited that he will be available to answer questions and assist with any wine and wine cellar related needs for all of Fairways Wine Vault’s customers.
