Andrea Difiore (Wine & Store Manager):
Andrea hit the ground running when she joined Andover Liquors in January 2006. Her enthusiasm and an extensive knowledge of the wine industry has garnered her a huge following among Andover Liquor's customers. A relentless passion and curiosity for wine has taken Andrea from Tuscany's Chianti country to California's Sonoma & Napa Valleys to Argentina's Mendoza region, and points in between too numerous to mention. She completed the Wine Studies Certificate Program at Boston University, which included tastings and intense courses on varietals, regions, wine and food pairings, and the business of wine.
Chris Whitaker (Assistant Manager):
Chris joined the Andover Liquors staff in August of 2006 with a desire to work hard. Recognizing his hard work and dedication, he has worked his way up the ranks to Assistant Manager. While he is mostly a “behind the scenes” guy, his knowledge of the store’s inventory and expertise of running the store makes him an invaluable member to our team. He would be glad to help you with any questions you may have!
Maggie Griset (Assistant Wine Manager)
Maggie joined the Andover Liquors team in September 2009, bringing a unique set of qualifications: A love of wine and avid desire to learn that earned her a spot on the wine staff; proficiency in the French language, which may account for her particular fondness of French wines; and in particular a degree in Environmental Studies from the University of Redlands has piqued her interest in biodynamic and organic wine-making. Currently a student in the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) program, Maggie looks forward to continuously expanding her wine knowledge alongside our customers.
