Wine Director/Sommelier, QED Hospitality, Pontchartrain Hotel, New Orleans
Making wine easier in the Big Easy
Minton oversees all things wine at the multiple restaurants and bars within the historic Pontchartrain Hotel. She focuses these spaces on small-production and natural wines, which includes lots of bubbles, as well as low markups. Minton loves to introduce guests to new discoveries and make wine approachable, and seeks to give wine the same celebratory and attitude-free vibe that defines the Big Easy.
