Stephanie has worked at Mission Bay since it opened in November 2019. She has worked in the city as a fine dining server and a sommelier and started her wine studies in 2012. Originally, she started working with us at Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant as a way to immerse herself in the wine world. 

Now as a Certified Sommelier she has gone on to finish her WSET 3 and the French and Italian Wine Scholar programs offered by the Wine Scholar Guild. Her passions are blind tasting, dogs, babies, and a crispy white wine on a hot day. "The first glass is for thirst. The second, for taste.

Christine Questel, Controller ~ christine@fpwm.com
Born December 25th, 1956 in Brooklyn NY. The best Christmas present my mom ever got! After being paroled from college in 1974 I traveled around counting bubbles and bartending till I found my heart in SF – 1988. Then in 2005 I found FPWM and took over as Controller and Chief Bubble Counter.
