Nicole Ramée

Nicole Ramée born and raised in Lambertville, New Jersey. What inspired her to get into the wine industry was by accident. After graduating with a Bachelor’s degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology she moved home in hopes of starting her own sustainable clothing line.

In 2019 she ventured to New York City to work for Danny Meyer, Union Square Hospitality Group. Being a part of the opening team of Intersect by Lexus as a server assistant.
