Vincent moved to California from his native Phoenix to attend Sonoma State University on a soccer scholarship. His proximity to wine country piqued his interest in the subject, and he ended up concentrating in wine business strategies and marketing. After graduation he honed his knowledge at renowned wineries such as Ridge Vineyards, as well as at famed Bay Area restaurants such as The French Laundry, Gary Danko and Benu, becoming a Master Sommelier before the age of 31. 2022 was a banner year for Vincent: he was designated the “Sommelier of the Year” by VinePair and was named the Michelin Guide California “Sommelier of the Year.” He acts as the Chairperson of the Diversity Committee of the Court of Master Sommeliers, where he focuses on making the organization more inclusive of women, LGBTQ+, BIPOC and other unrepresented communities within the wine and hospitality industry. He is currently wine director at PRESS Restaurant in Napa, where he oversees a Wine Spectator “Grand Award” winning list containing 2,700 selections, including the largest collection of Napa wines in the world.
