Advanced Sommelier and Italian Wine Advisor
Chris Schaetzle began his hospitality career at The Little Nell and eventually joined Carlos in transforming the wine program at Matsuhisa Aspen. In 2015, Chris gained the valuable experience of opening a restaurant as the first wine director of The Monarch in Aspen. Early in his career, he worked with programs focused on French and US wines, but when a wine trip to France took an unexpected detour into Piedmont, a new love of Italy was born. Chris currently works in sales for a distributor and importer of fine wines.
