Originally from Roanoke, Matt Brown graduated from the University of Virginia in 2010 with a degree in Foreign Affairs. Matt also works at Wine Made Simple and at King Family Vineyards in Crozet. At the vineyard, he enjoys staffing the tasting room year-round, conducting private tastings and tours of the winery, as well as getting his hands dirty in the vineyard during harvest time. While at the Bistro, Matt helps oversee the wine list and organizes monthly wine pairing dinners. Every Monday, Matt is behind the counter at Wine Made Simple, researching new wines for the shop or helping customers find the perfect bottle of wine. He also leads the occasional “Wine 101″ class for beginners. Matt is using his experience to reach his goal of obtaining a Master’s Degree in wine business. His dream is to one day own his own vineyard here in Virginia.
