The Somm Set by Benchmark Wine Group






Featuring Bryan Lipa,
Sommelier

Bryan Lipa

My name is Bryan Lipa and I own a wine start-up called Evolve Wine Group that I created last year. My wife and I have been in Napa for over 10 years now. 

I grew up in the second-best city in the country, St. Louis, Missouri. I managed great hotel F&B programs at The Ritz Carlton, Millennium, and The Omni before working as the GM of Niche restaurant owned by James Beard winner Gerard Craft. My career then took me to the best city in the country, Napa! I moved to work at The French Laundry where I spent 4 years, 2 as a sommelier. I tried, I mean sold, some of the best wines on the planet and feel even deeper in love with white and red burgundy. I left TFL to manage the Staglin family’s national sales for two years before I help start Scale Wine Group, managing some of the best California boutique brand’s national sales. My new company works with brands like Favia, Purlieu, Matthiasson, Seabold, and Castiel Estate and I am having a blast. 

Stay tuned- Bryan Lipa will be featured on The Somm Set throughout January 2022!
