The Woman Behind the Curtain

mugshotMelissa Zeman has worked in Chicago’s wine industry for eight years, specializing in retail, events, and wine club management. Her career has allowed her to meet incredible people on all sides of the industry – from winemakers to cellar masters, restaurateurs to retailers, distributors to importers, sommeliers to some pretty hip delivery drivers.

Melissa loves wine because of the way it connects people – to places, to memories, to history, to each other. This is very corny but very true. She also firmly believes that wine is fun and that everyone should drink/have more of it. Wine On, Chicago was created to help make this happen. The goal is to bring people together to enjoy and learn about wine in an intimate but non-intimidating way.

She also just likes to party, so please join her.
