Puckett’s Boat House is privileged to have Keith Simpkins lead the remaining sessions of Uncorked, our monthly wine tasting series. A native of Nashville, Keith previously served as Bar Manager at The Southern in downtown Nashville, where he jumped on the fast track to learning about wines which quickly ignited a passion for the experience.
He is currently a sales manager for Grainger, and says that working outside of the industry has reminded him of his affinity for exploring and teaching the vast complexities of wine on a regular basis.
Leading “Uncorked” on Tuesday, August 16, Keith will encourage guests to keep an open mind as together they taste and discuss four pinot noirs from different regions around the world.
“Wine is whatever you want it to be,” Keith said. “Pinot noir is one of the elegant wines of the world — some of the most affordable and the most expensive — and I am looking forward to engaging with our guests about the differences and similarities within the same varietal. To me, the best part about wine is that there’s no right or wrong answer. Whatever you taste, that’s what you taste and I love to talk about the different flavors and sensations that people will pick up on.”
