Who’s Who at Lieb Cellars: Melanie McKay
Name and Position: Melanie McKay, Tasting Room Associate
What do you do at Lieb Cellars?
I work in the tasting room pouring wine for our guests on the weekends!
How did you come to work in the wine industry?
Through friends that also work in the industry and also because of my slight love for vino culture.
What’s your favorite part about working at LC?
I like that there always was a positive vibe walking through the doors at Lieb. And so I’m happy I get to be a part of a simply wonderful team and serve a product that rarely ever disappoints.
What are your favorite Lieb and non-Lieb wines?
My favorite Lieb wines are Meritage, Cab Franc, Blanc de Blancs, & Sauvignon Blanc. Other non-Lieb wines include Italian varietals such as Sangiovese, Nebbiolo & Dolcetto. And for celebrations you can’t go wrong with Veuve Clicquot Rosé.
If someone gave you $100 and the day off, how would you spend it?
I would take the money and the day off this time of year to go into the city to visit food trucks/restaurants and try some new delicious food that I have never had before.
