Certified Sommelier Curates Wine Selections Based on Your Tastes &  Aspirations

Derry Van Nortwick, Head Wine Director, has been responsible for many notable wine programs in southern California: Ponsaty’s Restaurant (Grand Award), Intercontinental Hotel SD, Valentina Restaurant, Clara Carlsbad, Bellamy’s Restaurant, La Villa (Best Italian Wine List - Eater) just to name a few. Derry’s work has been featured in numerous articles: Home & Garden, Modern Luxury, Union-Tribune, Eater SD, Business Journal

Derry oversees Cork & Knife, a boutique wine and specialty foods shop, where he hand-picks each wine selection. He maintains long-standing and close relationships with European importers, distributors, and many small production California growers, whose wines are rarely seen in the market due to hyper-local demand.

Our wine team holds various degrees and accolades in the wine industry including Court of Master Sommelier levels, B.S. degrees in Wine Marketing, Agribusiness, Enology, and Culinary. Accolades include Wine Spector Grand Award for excellence for wine list curation and SOM COM appearances.
