Working at Downtown Crown in Gaithersburg, Bill has
utilized his 20-plus years of experience to curate the
best wine selection in the area and an amazing Wine By
The Glass Program. He also organizes complimentary
educational wine festivals and partners with local restaurants for fabulous wine dinners.
Downtown Crown isn’t only a place to buy wine, it’s
also a lively place to enjoy one of 16 wines by the glass
along with a delicious charcuterie plate, which Bill is also
curating. Bill is also the wine buyer at Lakewood Country
Club and helps with wine buying at Georgetown Square
Wine and Beer.
Despite the challenges of operating under the DLC,
Bill has proven it’s not impossible to provide value driven
and interesting wines. You just have to work harder.
