Jessica Taylor

A Silver-pin certified Sommelier (North American Sommelier Association) and Certified Sherry Wine Specialist (Wine Scholar Guild), Jessica has taken her love of wine and transformed it into a career. After many years in the hospitality industry as a server and bartender, she earned her wine certifications and quickly became a restaurant leader, developing a major wine program at a private member’s club in downtown Los Angeles and now as the Assistant General Manager and Head Sommelier at Michelin-starred restaurant Maude in Beverly Hills. She has planned, produced, and executed wine events of all sizes – from staff trainings, to themed consumer classes, to large tasting extravaganzas. Jessica plans to continue her own training and development in order to inspire others on their own journeys to success.
