“Age appears best in four things: old wood to burn,
old wine to drink, old friends to trust and old authors to read.” 
― Francis Bacon
This Week's Speaker: Adam Danielson, Owner
 FERMENTED, A Wine Boutique
Adam is originally from Seattle but raised in Florida. Having worked for many years in restaurant management, Adam was given opportunities to manage the wine programs of many reputable dining establishments in Amelia Island, Santa Barbara and Austin, including Brett’s Waterway Café, Zooker’s Café and Parkside Projects. While in Santa Barbara he volunteered often during the harvest in local vineyards and learned the process of winemaking. In 2014 he came to Atlanta to work in some of the top restaurants then made his way into the distribution channel with the National Distributing Company. He is the founder and curator of Fermented in downtown Alpharetta where they provide an outstanding experience introducing people to amazing wines and transporting them to the countries and villages they came from. They fight for the artisan wine and seek to be a force to help them thrive.
