  • Stephen Feke, Winemaker

    Stephen Feke has over 17 years’ experience working in the United States wine industry. He began working for V. Sattui winery while attending high school in St. Helena, California in the Napa Valley. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management while working as an Enologist for the E&J Gallo corporation's premiere red wine facility in the formerly owned Louis M. Martini Winery.

After working in Los Angeles for 6 years as Assistant Winemaker for San Antonio Winery, and searching for an urban winemaking balance, Stephen accepted the role as Assistant Winemaker for City Winery Atlanta. After a successful opening and harvest in Atlanta, Stephen accepted the role as Head Winemaker there and was then chosen to be the Winemaker for the new City Winery Boston opening in the fall of 2017.

  • RENÉE GAUMOND, Program Director

    Renee found her way to the music industry through her bike shop in Berkeley California where she presented live music in the basement as a way to support local artists. Word got out and this intimate listening space soon became a favorite community space to play and hear music. Her passion for presenting live music brought her to the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse, an iconic folk music venue in Berkeley where she spent 8 years, working her way up the ranks and rebranding the venue’s programming to include more headlining artists and higher audience attendance. While at the Freight, Renee collaborated with City Winery Napa and became a fan of the organization. When the opportunity to join the City Winery Boston team presented itself, it was too good of an opportunity to pass up so she loaded up the RAV 4 and moved to Boston. “City Winery is the gold standard in the live music, concert experience and I’m extremely honored and excited to be a part of the team."

  • Kelly Coggins, Beverage Director

    Once on the road to becoming a pastry chef, Kelly was bitten by the booze bug in college and hasn't looked back. It was there at the Culinary Institute of America that he discovered how interesting the intricacies of wine and spirits can be--driving him to become the Beverage Director of Rialto in Cambridge and Head Sommelier at Bistro du Midi in Boston. He also served as the Beverage Director and General Manager at Strip-T's in Watertown, where the restaurant received two James Beard award nominations for outstanding service. Throughout his career, Kelly has aspired to learn as much as he can about wine and aggressively pursued an education to become a true wine nerd. He has completed the Court of Master Sommeliers Certified exam and is currently studying for the Advanced exam. He has also traveled to Italy, Portugal, and (to truly understand the entire wine making process) has worked harvest in the Mosel region for Weiser-Künstler where he gained a true appreciation for German wines (and learned a killer pierogi recipe). Constantly doling out bits of fascinating trivia to guests and making sure his co-workers feel confident with their wine list, he has also taught a course on terrior driven cocktails at Portland Cocktail Week and as an elective at the Bar Institute program in Austin, TX. Always eager to share his experiences and understanding of the wine world, Kelly has lent books from his personal library to a number of Boston's bartenders, sommeliers, and distributors. When not trying to educate the world, Kelly is exploring it (often with his husband in tow). He is also the current serving president for the Boston chapter of the U.S. Bartenders Guild.

  • JOHN OVERSTREET, Technical Director

    Back in the late 1980’s, John was returning some rental mics for his band in D.C. when the sound company owner asked him if he was busy that day. “I’m short on crew, want to learn how to do sound? Get in the truck.” All these years later, he is still ready to get on board. This time at City Winery in Boston as Technical Director. He has spent the years in between touring the U.S. and the world as a live sound engineer and sometimes as tour manager for many bands including Morphine, Throwing Muses, Buffalo Tom, Belly, Agnes Obel, Cibelle, and Isis (the 1997-2010 metal band, not...). When not on the road, the Middle East Nightclub in Cambridge, Massachusetts was home base for 20 years where he served as Production Manager and Head Sound Engineer. Best moment ever: mixing a Dick Dale show, noticing Robert Plant hanging out by the sound board and chatting with him about Led Zeppelin sound checks. Heaven!
