About Joseph Phillips
Master Sommelier Joe Phillips traces his love of wine back to two distinct individuals: a college professor who not only introduced him to fine wine but also to Irish stout and Chinatown in Boston, and a restaurant manager who was fixated on the thought of devoting an entire refrigerator to storing wine (before the proliferation of dedicated “wine fridges”). These outside influences lured Joe out of his sheltered, East Coast upbringing and tapped into his sense of adventure. Once he caught the wine-and-food bug, there was no turning back. Before he realized what was happening, he was stalking used bookstores, scouring the racks for any texts that were related to wine.
Joe, who was part of the opening team for the Bellagio Resort in Las Vegas, became a Master Sommelier during his career there. He is an active examiner and educator for the Court of Master Sommeliers and a Certified Educator through the Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET). He previously managed award-winning wine programs for Aqua, Sensi, and Michael Mina. Joe left the Bellagio to become the Director of Wine for the MGM Grand Resort in Las Vegas. Currently Joe is a Director of Product Education for Southern Glazer’s Wine, Spirits, and Beer of Nevada and makes frequent guest appearances at many venues in Las Vegas, Reno, and UNLV’s William F. Harrah College of Hospitality.
Founded in Calabasas, CA, and located in Henderson, NV since 2002, Gaetano’s is a second-generation
family-owned restaurant serving classic Italian recipes. Owners Nick and Sarah Palmeri offer a seasonal selection of house-made pastas, and entrees in an elegant dining room with five-star service. The restaurant also features regular wine dinners and a popular happy hour.
