James Beard Award-winning humorist and certified sommelier Maryse Chevriere was most recently the Wine Director at Dominique Crenn's acclaimed San Francisco restaurant, Petit Crenn. She currently resides in Boston where she works in hospitality and continues to develop her popular @freshcutgardenhose account.

'Sommelier Maryse Chevriere has a not-so-secret identity. When she isn't pouring wine, she's reigning on Instagram as @freshcutgardenhose, the world's foremost visual interpreter of wine tasting notes.' -Food & Wine

'Maryse Chevriere illustrates, lampoons, and celebrates the excesses of winespeak via her @freshcutgardenhose Instagram account.' -Luke Sykora, Wine & Spirits Magazine

'Chevriere scours social media platforms such as Instagram, Vivino and Delectable for tips on wines that might be worthy additions to a wine list. And while most of us might read a wine description and wonder what the wine tastes like, Chevriere takes a different tack: She visualizes the description and puts pencil to paper, with surreal and witty results.' -Dave McIntyre, The Washington Post

'A US-based sommelier has struck a blow for clarity by creating a series of witty drawings to represent abstract wine descriptions.' -Darren Smith, The Drinks Business
