Leslie Hill, a native of the gorgeous Hudson Valley in New York takes full advantage of her surroundings by enthusiastically partaking in its vibrant arts and culinary scenes, as well as its natural beauty. She spends her free time focusing on capturing its beauty through photography, and, thereby often enjoys hiking its peaks and valleys. Living a hop, skip and a jump from the Hudson River affords her breathtaking views on a daily basis. Her proximity to New York City and the local arts scene in the Hudson Valley give Leslie unending opportunities to enjoy concerts, films, art shows, and amazing food.
Until a dinner party in her mid-twenties introduced her to its delights, wine was not of great significance to Leslie’s life. She began enjoying it at that point, but only recently has come to learn to begin to unlock its mysteries.
In 2013, after working in real estate for many years, Leslie was ready for a new challenge and took a part-time position with Weygandt Selections. She quickly became full time and worked closely with the office manager to learn the ins and outs of wholesale wine distribution. Within two years, she oversaw the daily operations for all New York, New Jersey and California sales. It was then that Leslie began to fine-tune her appreciation for the wine business.
Leslie is overjoyed to be working with such a close-knit and cool team at Schatzi. She is looking forward to bringing what she has learned so far to the table, while continuing to learn everything necessary to help it thrive.
