Meet our resident Master Sommelier, Dustin Wilson

Dustin Wilson, Master Sommelier


Wine, for me, has always been about connection — to the people I share it with, to the place we’re drinking it, to that moment in time. With The Grand Tour, we’re making it possible for you to access the kinds of wines that amplify these connections no matter the occasion. Cheers!

Dustin Wilson knows a lot about wine. His career spans some of the top restaurants across the US: Frasca Food & Wine in Boulder, CO; The Little Nell, in Aspen; and RN74 in San Francisco. He is best known for his position as Wine Director of the 3 Michelin-starred restaurant, Eleven Madison Park in New York City. This expertise led him to have a leading role in the critically acclaimed wine documentary, SOMM, and he was later featured in the film’s sequel, SOMM: Into the Bottle and the newly released, SOMM 3.

Dustin started Verve Wine in 2016 with veteran wine merchant Derrick Mize, and The Grand Tour is an extension of that project.
