Jim Meyers grew up in the Pacific Northwest after living a short term in both California and the Midwest. After attending Portland State University, he started a 13-year old career with a national restaurant chain as General Manager and Director of Operations. In 1995, a career change led Jim into the retail industry as a senior buyer of wine and beverages for a Western United States grocery chain. An unexpected turn of events turned a dream to reality when, in 1999, Jim opened Wine Thieves with co-founder Bennett Burke. Today, Jim lives in the East Bay with his wife and daughter. He enjoys cycling, skiing and of course, food and wine.
Angie Lundgren has a deep appreciation and knowledge for cheese. She is yet to meet a cheese she didn’t like, but there are some which she has particular affinity. Each cheese has a unique character, ranging from subtle to sublime – in Angie’s case; the stinky is often the sublime. You will often catch Angie serving a wonderful Italian Carboncino or Blu del Moncenisio, their creamy earthiness is incredibly indulgent. The washed rind cheeses definitely fall into the aromatic category, and put a big smile on Angie’s face.
