Meet The Experts

Wine can be confusing. We’re here to make it easy. Say hello to our team of dedicated wine professionals!

CLIF LOUIS  //  OWNER

My father was stationed in France after the war and he fell in love with French wine. Growing up I was able to taste the great wines my dad served and I, too, fell for French wines! After graduating from the University of Denver I had a couple of different jobs but always wanted to be in the wine business somehow. When I asked Robbie Wilson (founder of The Vineyard in 1971) if he would hire me, he said I could be the stock boy, which allowed me to learn the ropes of the wine business. After a year, he offered to sell me the store and I, of course, said yes. That was 35 years ago. It has been great fun owning The Vineyard and I am thrilled to have such great, knowledgeable, friendly people around to share in the fun! I hope the store will be around for another 46 years!  

Nathan Gordon, GM and Wine Buyer

Nathan’s passion for wine developed as the natural consequence of a decade spent living, working, eating and drinking in New Orleans. After tiring of the hospitality industry’s late nights and working a couple of years with a software startup, he decided in early 2013 to pursue his passion full-time and joined his friendly neighborhood fine wine shop, The Vineyard, as part of the sales team. Chasing the Master of Wine credential as well as that of Master Sommelier, he’s currently in the homestretch of the Wine & Spirits Education Trust’s Diploma program and studying for the Court of Master Sommeliers’ Advanced Sommelier exam. His role curating The Vineyard’s selection is a simple one, he says. “I’m always looking at quality-to-price ratio. Whether the bottle you’ve chosen costs $9 or $1900, the bottom line should always be value. I’m here to make sure you’re getting more than you pay for, no matter what you pay.” When he isn’t tasting, tasting, tasting for work and study, he’s usually running around the mountains somewhere with his lady and their two dog-beasts.

Peter Scanlon

The Vineyard’s chief Cellar Dweller and Beer Buyer, Peter was classically trained as a pastry chef at Johnson & Wales University. After a bottle of Greek Assyrtiko blew his freaking mind, he became consumed with anything and everything fermented. Now, after rising out of the depths of the restaurant world and between playing music and brewing beer, this is what he does: He drinks things and he knows things and he’s here to share that knowledge with our customers.

Grant Harmsen

Grant joined The Vineyard in August 2016 after spending two years in Sonoma. He got hooked on wine living in Burgundy, and upon his return to the States he began working at a micro-winery in Tacoma, Washington. In Sonoma he worked for a larger winery, where he did everything from picking grapes to designing labels to marketing and social media outreach. Grant has completed the Wine & Spirits Education Trust Advanced Course and is currently pursuing certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers. He is always on the hunt for the obscure, forgotten, well-aged and downright weird wines of the world. Grant heads up The Vineyard’s weekly free tastings and loves introducing our customers to new regions and wines. When he’s not focusing on wine, Grant’s hobbies include exploring the mountains, playing tennis, cooking and classic cars.

Dave Chew

Dave’s first “Aha!” wine moment was blind-tasting the 1980 Carneros Creek Fay Vineyard Cabernet shortly after its release. (“Yes,” says Dave, “I’m that old.”) Since then he’s enjoyed many Napa Cabs along with all the other usual suspects—Bordeaux, Burgundy, Barolo, Rioja. Lately, all the young wine lovers at The Vineyard have convinced him that white wines can be just as complex and delicious as reds. His major weakness is still Sauternes (all dessert wines, really), and of course there’s still nothing that compares with a great Champagne.

Sharon Newhof

Sharon loves her job as The Vineyard’s Chief Financial Officer, Accountant and all-around Numbers Queen. “The staff is always willing to help me learn more,” she says, “both about wine in general and specifically what I enjoy. Clif is a great boss, and who wouldn’t want to work in the best wine shop in Denver!”
