Sommelier Jon McDaniel is the founder and CEO of Second City Soil, a Chicago-based wine consultancy. He works with wineries, suppliers, distributors, and various global marketing agencies on growth and brand strategy in the Chicagoland area, United States, and globally. Jon is recognized as one of America's top wine professionals and is one of the most awarded Sommeliers. He has done a little bit of everything in the wine business, from his own California wine label - Amos Cellars to being a founding member of the United Sommelier's Foundation and his newest endeavor, The Vine Hive. When he's not tasting wines for his business, you can find Jon drinking drinks that only an 85-year-old Italian Nonno would appreciate.
