    About Sommelier Steph
    After devoting 17 years to emergency and critical care veterinary nursing, Steph decided to leave medicine and turn her much loved wine hobby into a second career. She began working at a Finger Lakes winery where she immersed herself in every aspect of wine making: vineyard experience, harvest and crush, and the tasting room where she honed her skills in food and wine pairing. While working in the winery, she joined a company which provided small, semi-private, educational wine tours within the FLX region. Within this time she also became beverage manager and wine captain of a high-end catering company, where she was able to continue her work with local winemakers in putting together tasting menus for private events.
     
    She obtained her sommelier training through The Court of Master Sommeliers and is a member of the Guild of Sommeliers. She is currently a member of the sommelier team at Les Trois Rois, a 5-star hotel in Basel, where she serves as the bar sommelier and bar supervisor.
     
    She lives in Muttenz with her husband Richard, her dog Gracie, and her super adorable kitties Ophelia and Mister.

    Garden Party for Voting Rights

    Come be inspired and learn about the hidden histories of the civil rights and suffragist movements. Come register to vote, request your ballot, and discover initiatives that secure and defend the right to vote for all citizens of the United States.

    Join us on August 29th as US citizens living in Switzerland, friends, and allies gather together to commemorate two foundational victories for voting rights: the 55th Anniversary of the Voting Rights Act and the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, both passed in August. These victories were hard won through steadfast commitment on the ground and a resolute belief in the righteous promise of equal representation for all. They remind us that democracy is precious; they re-affirm our commitment to Get Out The Vote in November.

    Pricing:

    • Adult (13+): CHF 25
    • Child (12 and under): CHF 15

    Please purchase your ticket(s) ahead of time on Eventzilla.


    We will lounge in the relaxed outdoor setting at the Fork & Bottle in Zurich, to enjoy music, poetry, literary readings, and historical documents, and explore the untold stories and experiences of diverse people who have fought for political representation throughout the United States and across time.
    We will celebrate those who have organized for the right to vote and those who continue to work for a more perfect union with true representation for all. We will re-affirm our commitment to racial and gender equity and continue our initiatives to Get Out the Vote for November 2020.
