About Nicole Velez
Shortly after graduating, Nicole found herself at the helm of Michael Mina's Seablue at The Borgata Hotel & Casino. Starting as a captain, a position that opened her eyes (and heart) to the world of wine, Nicole discovered her true love in her first sip of a 1969 DRC Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache Grand Cru.
In 2010, passion and ambition took her to New York City, where she evolved as a beverage director. Still, Nicole knew she wanted to immerse herself in the world of wine fully. She seized an opportunity with Lauber Imports as a wine consultant, which allowed her to further her wine education. This experience paved the way for Nicole to take on the role of current State Manager of New York for Chateau Lafite Rothschild. After assisting with the launch of Barons de Rothschild Champagne, Nicole vowed that she would find her way to the bubbly life.
Fast forward to now, with great enthusiasm, Nicole embraces her role as National Brand Manager. She is excited for champagne enthusiasts to experience the fearless pursuit of pleasure with each sip of Beau Joie Champagne.
