Juliette Pope, Beverage Director at Gramercy Tavern, is this week’s guest on In the Drink. Juliette Pope joined Gramercy Tavern in 1997, starting as a line cook and pastry cook. Wanting to explore the front of house, Juliette then became a waiter and developed a passion for wine, falling prey to former wine director Paul Grieco’s infectious enthusiasm. After rising through the ranks as Captain, Floor Manager, and Assistant Beverage Director, Juliette became the Beverage Director in 2004. Under her leadership, Gramercy Tavern has been awarded the Wine Spectator “Best of Award of Excellence” every year since 2006. This program was brought to you by Michter’s.
