Spending over 30 years in the Restaurant and Hospitality Industries, he successfully managed food and beverage operations for many companies – starting with his family business at Conti’s Cross Keys Inn and Pipersville Inn, both located in the heart of Bucks County.
From there, Mike went “back to school” and spent 13 years as the Director of Food & Beverage
for Penn State Hospitality Services at University Park from 1992 – 2005. Afterwards, Mike
moved “back home” to Bucks County to manage the openings of Earl’s Prime Steak House in
Peddler’s Village, and Bobby Simone’s Restaurant in Doylestown. During that time, he authored
two wine lists that achieved the Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, and also started his own
Wine Education Company – From Stem To Learn, LLC.Mike’s passion for wine began when he was six years old on a trip to visit family relatives in northern Italy. It was there that his great grandmother strolled him up the hillsides of Mongardino- outside of Asti – to familiarize him with vineyards of Barbera d Asti. The smells and sights of the landscapes were never lost, and continue to inspire Mike each day to appreciate wine to its fullest.
