Originally from Florida, Robin moved to New York City in 2013 to pursue a career as a translator and found herself part of the front-of-house team at LCL Bar & Kitchen at the Westin Grand Central. It was during that time, thanks to impactful wine education and mentorship, that Robin first realized her calling as a sommelier - perfectly marrying her love for global cultures and hospitality. From there, she catapulted to the Michelin-starred Aureole and later Dovetail, where she worked as a sommelier. In 2018, she joined the award-winning beverage team at The NoMad Hotel, working under Beverage Director Thomas Pastuszak as a sommelier, while also overseeing the restaurant's expansive beer program, a collection that included over 150 selections. Compelled to explore the world of French fine dining, Robin took a position as sommelier at the acclaimed Daniel in 2021, developing a deep appreciation for the classics.
At Ci Siamo, Robin is proud to oversee a beverage program that showcases the diversity and depth of Italian viticulture, giving an equal spotlight to some of the wine world's most celebrated producers and its lesser-known innovators.
