Faith Linkogel

23 years ago Faith graduated with a BA in Dance from Webster University. The day after graduation, she walked into a local restaurant and started serving (it's hard to make a living in the arts). She fell in love with wine and the restaurant industry immediately. Wine, food and hospitality became her home for the next 10 years. She passed the first level Court of Master Sommelier test and became a restaurant manager, wine buyer and wine educator for an iconic St. Louis restaurant.

 

In January of 2009 she made the jump to wine distribution and became the top sales rep at Appellations Fine Wines. 

In 2011 she joined Pinnacle Imports and has never looked back. 

 

Her 9 years of growing success at Pinnacle have made her a trusted and reliable professional in the industry.

Her travels to some of the great wine growing regions of the world have given her knowledge and passion that fuel her daily sales and make her a stand out in the market. Her favorite part of wine is getting to know the people and place that make it. She loves to study winemakers as they share their story and passion, then smell the air and touch the dirt the grapes are grown in. 

 

Her number one goal as a sales rep and wine professional is to make her customers' business as successful as possible through knowledge, education, passion and understanding.

Favorite wine to sell - Her favorite thing to sell is Heritiers du Comte Lafon.

 

Favorite wine to drink - She loves to drink white Burgundy and Rosé. In her glass right now is 2019 Terre Nere Etna Rosato.
