Welcome to The Blog @ Amantivino!!

Our aims for this blog are much in line with those of the store. We want every visit to both to be fun, informative and free of the slightest hint of pretension. We will aim to update several times a week with major happenings in the wine world, news from the store, highlights from great pairing dinners or events, stories from our travels around the world’s best wine regions and much, much more.

In an effort to keep this blog current and diverse we will include a number of contributors from the Amanti Vino team. Proprietor Sharon Sevrens was blogging long before she opened the store and has recently earned the distinguished Diploma from the Wine and Spirits Education Trust. Her writing will introduce the world to the palate that gives Amanti Vino its dynamic character and intriguing inventory.

Sue Guerra has been with Amanti for over a year and blogs as a free-lance writer for New Jersey Monthly. She will bring her unique, witty and informative style to the blog.  

Along with his love for wine, Travis Glohs displays a passion and knowledge for beer that is unrivaled at Amanti Vino. Time and time again, Travis has shown the ability to stay on the cutting edge of a constantly evolving micro-brew market. His restaurant background and impressive memory for fantastic meals and successful pairings will ensure that food is not neglected here.

I have been with Amanti Vino for almost three years and am reaching the end of my WSET Diploma work. I am a certified Sommelier through the Court of Master Sommeliers and am extremely passionate about wine education. While I certainly enjoy the occasional “splurge bottle,” nothing excites me more than seeking out fantastic values from little known producers or appellations.

There will be a number of other contributors as well, possibly including visiting winemakers, our favorite importers, local chefs and other members of the Amanti Vino team. We would like to thank you in advance for stopping by to read this and would like this space to be as interactive as possible. We know how many of you are certified “wine nerds” or “cork dorks” and we want to hear from you often. We have high hopes for this space and hope that you enjoy reading it as much as we do building it.
