Caroline Conrad is the Regional Sales Manager for Vine Street Imports. Caroline graduated from Boston University with her B.S. in Hospitality Management. Her first post-college experience was spent as a Kitchen Server at Thomas Keller's Per Se. After such an invaluable experience, she continued her restaurant career in NYC with Mario Batali and Joe Bastianich as the GM of their high-volume Greenwich Village hotspot, Otto, for 4 years. She then moved on to assist with the opening of the 50,000-square-foot Italian market, Eataly, in Chicago, and soon after led the opening of Mario and Joe's Babbo Pizzeria e Enoteca in Boston, MA.
Following much time managing Italian restaurants, Caroline will always have a soft spot for Italian wine. With that said, Caroline discovered Vine Street Imports after opening a bottle of one of its wines, Le Ragnaie Rosso di Montalcino, for some of her regular guests. Moving back to her hometown city of Philadelphia was always a goal and this discovery only accelerated that plan. The rest is history... she is happy to be home and proud to be a part of such a wonderful company.
