About Chad Douglass

Wine tasting!  It really is a tough job!  And our Sommelier, Chad Douglass, has to do it as he creates and re-creates The Hotel’s renowned Wine List for our guests’ enjoyment.  Chad has been developing and expanding The Hotel’s Wine Cellar for the past decade. In the beginning, he endured an intense week of blind wine tastings, instruction, and written testing conducted by the world-famous Court of Master Sommeliers.  Chad earned the designation of Certified Wine Professional (CWP) and, with continued study (and tasting), he is on his way to become a Certified Sommelier (CS).  Someday Chad will be awarded the title of Master Sommelier (MS), of which there are only 103 in the North and South Americas.
