Michael Goldberg runs RedHead Wines, a wine consulting firm he founded after a careers on Wall Street and the executive search business. His epiphany struck 25 years ago over a glass of Meursault at Chef Charlie Palmer’s restaurant Aureole in NYC. He followed his passion into the wine world, immersing himself in NYC wine education classes, in-store tastings, visits to wineries and extensive reading. Michael soon became involved in online wine auctions through Wine Commune and started his wine consulting business. While growing his firm, Michael joined Total Wine & More where he holds the record for passing their 8 part TWP certification in the shortest time. As a Senior Sales Associate and wine instructor, Michael’s wine classes consistently sold out over 40 seats to over 100 monthly classes. He trained staff for new store openings and doubled as a Certified Beer Server (CBS) with the Cicerone Program.
In 2017 RedHead Wines had grown for a decade to occupy Michael’s full attention. He continues spearheading two prestigious elite wine groups, Wine Wizards & Palm Beach Wine Group. He blind tastes hundreds of wines monthly, providing clients with advanced cellar management, wine education & training, food/wine event planning, wine travel experiences, acquisitions, sales and liquidations. He participates in master class wine discussions on producing countries, regions/AVAs, wineries or governing bodies, explaining wine history, terroir, grape growing and winemaking procedures.
In his spare time, he enjoys distance running, live music and travel.
