MARSHALL TILDEN III, DWS, CSW – CHIEF REVENUE AND EDUCATION OFFICEER
From my first sips of wicker basket Chianti at my grandfather’s dinner table to a 1986 Premier Cru Gevrey-Chambertin, I knew that there was something magical about wine. I recently earned my Diploma in Wine and Spirits from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust and am now a Certified Specialist of Wine with the Society of Wine Educators. Having been with Wine Enthusiast Catalog since 2005, I lead the wine storage division and am the head of our in-house education program.
MICHAEL DREYFUS – OUR WINE STORAGE EXPERT FOR 27 YEARS
After growing up in the restaurant business and working actively in the wine trade for over 20 years, I was looking for another direction but still wanted a strong connection with wine and food. I decided to take my passion to the next level working directly with customers who wanted to learn new ways to enjoy and protect their wine collections. It’s been exciting and rewarding working at Wine Enthusiast. Be it recommending the best corkscrew to open a tricky cork, the proper wine glass for vintage port or building the cellar of their dreams, I am thrilled to help with a solution! Cheers!

I look forward to a celebratory glass of wine with you, as well toasting our soon to be successful wine cellar!
DARREN GOLD – OUR WINE STORAGE EXPERT FOR 15 YEARS
My most enjoyable moment at Wine Enthusiast was when I received my first phone call from an amazing couple expressing gratitude and pure joy shortly after the installation of their wine cellar I had designed. You would think they had just hit the lottery from the tone of their voices. At that moment, I realized I can have a positive impact on people’s lives through the work I do.
