Jeff Jamieson

Jeff's love of wine and food was born out of his ten years in the restaurant industry where he worked every job imaginable, from Dishwasher to General Manager. As co-owner of Vine Arts Wine and Spirits Jeff's vision for the store is all about passion. He believes that people who come in through the front door should recognize our passion for our product and as a result find some of that same passion in themselves. When he is not at the store he is likely riding his bike, reading, or in the company of good friends.
