New York Spotlight:
Abe Zarate, Beverage Director, Corkbuzz at Chelsea Market
Raw. Real. Riveting. Interviews.
Texas-native Berklee College of Music alumni, Abe Zarate moved to New York to pursue a career in music management. He held server positions on the side at Morandi and Momofuku - but it was at Corkbuzz where he discovered his passion for wine.
After taking a class at Corkbuzz, Abe took it upon himself to delve into wine education. It wasn’t long before he committed full-time attending tastings, helping with cellar work, and leading classes himself. Today, he runs the beverage program at the Chelsea Market location under the mentorship of Master Sommelier Laura Maniec.
