Northern Wine Odyssey: Courtney Schiessl – From Restaurants to Writing

We’re back on the subject of going after jobs in the wine industry this week, with our guest New York City-based sommelier-turned-full-time writer, Courtney Schiessl. Courtney has been published in SevenFifty Daily, Wine Enthusiast, VinePair,, The SOMM Journal, The Tasting Panel Magazine, Beverage Media,, ESPN, and more. 

This chat sincerely inspired me, as I realized that I’ve pretty much been able to watch Courtney grow into the professional that she is today almost from the beginning, which genuinely warmed my heart, and these days we all need a bit of that. If you know anyone in the restaurant industry who is currently unemployed and has wine expertise, we hope you’ll share this series with them and also check in with us for more content on wine journalism, trade and consumer education, and industry jobs.
