Before joining San Francisco Wine Society, Nils spent the previous five years as General Manager and co-owner of Belle Cora Wine Bar located in San Francisco’s North Beach neighborhood. Under Nils's leadership, Bella Cora became one of the North Beach’s most treasured gathering spaces. Nils has spent most of his career working at bars and restaurants across San Francisco that ranged from casual fine dining to bustling live music venues.
Growing up mostly in the Boston area, Nils also lived in Switzerland and New Zealand before graduating from Skidmore College in upstate New York. His love of travel gave way to a love of history, and if given the chance he’ll talk for hours about the stories of the places he has come to love and cherish.
