Archestratus Food & Wine Consulting
Restaurant & wine industry consulting services
in the San Francisco Bay Area
I offer wine consulting services that includes small restaurant wine programs, winemaking-to-bottling with minimal equipment, compliance assistance for the TTB and ABC, wholesale navigation, and viticultural advice for small wineries and vineyards starting lean and hoping to grow.
I also offer kitchen-focused culinary consulting that can upgrade food quality and efficiency in existing restaurants, and services that will help new restaurants open strong.
Our initial meeting to discuss your goals and how I might help is always free.
A brief history is here.
Archestratus was the first writer to regard gastronomy and wine as critical literary subjects in 350 BCE. Fish and wine were his favorite topics, and his council to seek the freshest ingredients and clean flavors showed clear appreciation of these historical crafts and the importance of terroir and seasonality.
