Meet our resident Master Sommelier, Dustin Wilson

Dustin Wilson, Master Sommelier


To me, wine has always been about connection — to the people we share it with, to the places we drink it, and to specific moments in time. With The Grand Tour, we’re bringing you prime expressions of the wines that we believe best 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 United States, including Frasca Food & Wine (Boulder, CO), The Little Nell (Aspen, CO), and RN74 (San Francisco, CA). Dustin 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 a feature role in the critically acclaimed wine documentary, SOMM. He was later featured in the film’s sequel, SOMM: Into the Bottle and the most recent release, SOMM 3.

Dustin co-founded Verve Wine in 2016 with veteran wine merchant Derrick Mize. The Grand Tour is an extension of this project. Verve Wine currently has brick-and-mortar locations in New York (Tribeca), San Francisco (Pacific Heights), and Chicago (Lincoln Park).
