Craig Heffley

Wine Authorities  |  Durham & Raleigh, NC

A North Carolina native, Craig has been the "Grand Poobah Wine Swami" at Wine Authorities wine shops for the past decade. As the creator, owner and buyer for these unique stores, he spends six to eight weeks every year visiting the world's wine growers, learning about their vineyards and winemaking so that he may bring back their stories and products to his thirsty customers.

A wine business veteran of more than 25 years, he has worked as a wine educator, retailer, wholesaler, importer, sommelier and a loud voice for independent, family-owned wine growers around the globe. He is as well known for his non-snobby accessibility and enthusiasm as he is for his experience and wine knowledge.
