Jimmy Collins, Publisher
Hailing from Bethlehem, PA, Collins has come to call Nashville home after a life involving extensive, worldwide travel. It is through that unique worldview as well as his over 10 years of high-end restaurant experience that he created the idea of Nashville WinePress as a resource to unify, demystify and strengthen the local wine community. Holding the position of Wine Manager at one of Nashville's true originals, The Mad Platter Restaurant, for over two and half years, Collins had the opportunity to not only develop his own love and understanding of wine, but also his uncanny ability to apply these well developed skills to help clients discover what connects for them when they are looking for a wine. Supporting these talents with his years of success assisting clients from novice to connoisseur, he brings to Nashville WinePress his passionate but uniquely accessible, oenophile insights. Insights aimed at meeting his audience where they are at and facilitating their journey into the world of wine.
