An industry focused Seminar focusing on the region of Burgundy. Hosted by Breakthru Beverage and Augustan Wine Imports' Jonathon Ramsey. After the seminar, our Bellwether team will provide a buffet lunch, and there will be Burgundy to enjoy.
Jonathan Ramsey – While growing up, Jonathan moved often with his parents who worked as Baptist Missionaries. His family settled in Atlanta in the 1990’s where Jonathan discovered wine while working in several fine dining restaurants. He later studied English Education and American Literature at the University of Georgia in Athens. After college, Jonathan moved to Saint Augustine to further his career in Education but soon realized that being passionate about English Literature and teaching English Literature were not the same thing. At this time, Jonathan began soul searching to find a way to combine his loves of wine and food with his passion to teach. In 2006, Jonathan took a job with Augustan Wine Imports and BreakThru Beverage (previously Premier Beverage Company) in Jacksonville. Now, 12 years later, Jonathan specializes in Fine Wine, serving as Business Manager for the Augustan Wine Imports Portfolio, as he continues actively studying advanced materials for all 3 major wine certifying agencies: WSET (Masters of Wine), SWE (Society of Wine Educators) and CMS (Court of Master Sommeliers).
The profits from all the events will go directly to supporting the educational efforts of The Merendino Foundation, as well as feeding the needy in our community through Feeding Northeast Florida.
