Meet the Sip Better Team

The Sip Better wine club is a teeny tiny business that I run out of Minneapolis. But that doesn't mean I do it alone! Below, meet three of the people who keep the Sip Better juice flowing behind the scenes. They'll be popping into the blog here and there to share what they know, so keep your eyes peeled and enjoy!  --Leslee, Sip Better Sommelier

What is your role at Sip Better?
Spreadsheet Queen: I manage Sip Better's social media calendar and content.

Favorite weird wine pairing?
Sometimes I eat a can of black olives for dinner + a glass of Albariño. 

Favorite place you've traveled?
When I studied abroad in Rio de Janeiro, I traveled inland to Ouro Preto for Easter weekend, and it was the most beautiful experience in such a historic town. They do an overnight art festival to paint the streets with flower petals for Easter morning and the entire town does a passion play in the streets.

How about a hidden talent?
I’ve played classical piano since age 4 and guitar since age 7.

Wine Clubs: The Perfect Mother's Day Gift

Sip Better figures out your taste for wine and goes deep


Published: May 2018

There’s a new wine club based out of Minneapolis that makes for just the sort of mom-pleasing gift we’re all looking for this time of year. I first heard about Sip Better from its founder, sommelier Leslee Miller. Miller operates Amusée, a wine company that teaches classes and builds delicious wine lists for restaurants. I was snuggled in at a seminar she led at Grandview Lodge’s yearly de’Vine weekend.

I had met Miller years before, and I fondly remember the first wine tasting we attended together because she described a white wine as having notes of Banana Runts. RUNTS! Does anyone else remember those little candies, often delivered from one of those little twist-turn vending...
