Among Friends:
A Virtual Wine Tasting with Lucien Walsh '88

About Lucien: Lucien started out as a stock person in a small wine shop in San Antonio, TX right after college. He says it was a fun way to pay his bills as he, "forged my path to international rock stardom in the fires of the Texas music scene." The forge was taking longer than he hoped, and in the meantime he graduated from stock boy to store manager. A move back to Baltimore meant an office job at a wine importer before shifting back to retail at what would become The Wine Source. Since then he's managed stores, restaurants, and more recently a team of 8 fine wine sales reps for Winebow, a national distributor. In November 2021 he stepped away from the spreadsheets and the team meetings to get back to the wine and the people, taking a sales job with Kysela Pere et Fils, a focused importer based in VA. He says, "my entire career has centered around conveying each producer's story and approach with passion and honesty. It's what I love to do and it feels good to get back to that - connecting great wines with the market and curious consumers."
