Gio Gutierrez's foray into the food and drink world began with Chat Chow TV, a mouthwatering video podcast that goes behind the scenes with chefs. In the wise words of Anthony Bourdain, it made me hungry for more... so he now spreads the love of rum as a Brand Ambassador for Bacardi as a leading face and voice in the drink industry.
Heath Porter is a 5-star sommelier who has run some of the most revered wine programs in the United States. He has achieved many accolades in his profession and in 2009 passed the third level of testing administered by the Court of Master Sommeliers. This accreditation leaves Porter as an advanced-level sommelier. Heath is a self-taught food and beverage professional and credits the fact that he grew up in a dry county surrounded by southern Baptists to the reason he drinks for a living.
