Nick has a background in the Software and IT industry. Working for a few different companies, he has learned the value of using software and technology to bring things together. His love for wine was discovered in his mid-20s and eventually the idea to build a software platform that bridges the gap between wines, wine consumers, and wine experts. His passion for technology and his curiosity of wine led to the eventual idea of WEVO Tastings and the platform that exists today, which is a platform that brings together wine consumers with wine experts. He still considers himself a "newbie" in the wine world.
Joe Burglin was co-owner and founder of Casavino Custom Winery, where he and his partner and son, Jordan, made wine with juices from all over the world, and taught thousands of others to make wine as well. Joe received his formal wine making training from University of California, Davis. As part of running a successful winery and becoming a wine maker (vintner), Joe realized early on the he needed to become knowledgeable about wine regions, varietals, characteristics, and all things wine. He learned to experience wine not only for where it came from or it’s individual characteristics, but from the perspective of the creator. Using his knowledge of wine making, Joe created some of the most educational, intriguing, insightful, and memorable wine tasting experiences ever.
