Mike Conti is a Wine Consultant with Vintage Imports, and proudly represents their portfolio of
wines for restaurant and retail operations. Mike grew up in Doylestown, PA and is a graduate of Central Bucks High School West. He earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Penn State University in Speech Communication in 1979. 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.
David Escobar-Martin – Sales Consultant email@example.com 215-788-1300 EX 439
Born just blocks away from where the Cuban revolution started, David’s life has always been both one of incredible luck and extreme drive. By chance, his family was granted the opportunity to emigrate to the United States in 1998, when David was just a child. Through their unparalleled work ethic his parents dedicated themselves to this second chance for the family, and thanks to his own efforts David became a laureled writer at 20, a double majored graduate of Temple University at 21, and the General Manager of multi-concept restaurant group in Pittsburgh by 23. Still, David never really knew what he would end up devoting his life to. It wasn’t until one fateful dinner, when his French professor took her students to Philadelphia’s Le Bec Fin, that he knew food and wine would come to dominate his life. Face to face with a bottle of 1945 Château Pétrus, which their sommelier showed the students as an example of their expansive cellar, he soon began to realize that nothing could ever be more important.
Starting from the bottom as a server and chef at a Japanese restaurant to pay his way through college, David soon learned every position before transitioning to the white tablecloths of an upscale French restaurant. After a move to Pittsburgh, he became the service manager, and later General Manager, of a prominent Italian restaurant. In 2019 he began working at Vintage Imports as the newest representative for the company in both Pittsburgh and State College, confirming his absolute obsession with wine and continuing what that bottle of Pétrus had started so many years ago.”
