“Ganna has taken our wine program to a higher level – doubling the number of options we offer our guests and making the choices more interesting and approachable. Because of her passion and enthusiasm our guests are experiencing great small production wines from some of the world’s lesser known wine regions – wines that truly complement our menu. We are fortunate to have her knowledge and enthusiasm here,” said Bob Lee – Owner at the Wishing Well
Ganna believes that newly obtained title will help her better satisfy ever-growing interest in fine wines and spirits among The Wishing Well’s guests and elevate the wine culture in the region but specifically the Saratoga area.
