ABOUT OUR MISSION

WE LOVE WINE!

Our goal is to bring people together for great wine in a fun, casual, and accessible way. We want to be a home for wine nerds, as well as people looking for a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine. 

 

We will always have a great wine list, and tasty food (e.g., cheese plates, paninis).  We offer structured tastings on Sunday (both in person and virtually through Zoom), and we’re hosting a Zoom-based blind tasting league night on Tuesdays.   We’re open to other ideas, too. 

Team Hummingbird

Allison Hugunin - Chef

Alison is a seasoned Chef who's worked in fine dining across the country! When she's not busy bringing new specials to our menu, she can be found working Gameday Operations for the Jacksonville Jaguars, or taking care of her pup as a full time dog mom! 

Hannah Emerson - Sommelier

Hannah is a seasoned server, wine lover, and graphic designer in the process of achieving her WSET 2 Diploma! When she's not helping customers find the perfect bottle of wine, she can be found designing for Non-Profits, playing with cats, or going to the gym. 

Erin Murphy - Sommelier

Erin is a Tallahassee native who loves good food, music, and of course, wine! She spent three years working as the General Manager at a local wine shop/bar, where she helped teach deductive tasting classes to the public, curated by-the-glass wine menus, and hand selected every wine that was put onto the shelves. Erin is a huge wine nerd who loves sharing her knowledge and love of wine with others, and loves to take people outside of their wine comfort zone. 

Westin Bielecky - Head Chef | GM

Westin has a wide background of culinary experiences. As a former Chef's Apprentice/Sous Chef of multiple fine dining establishments, Westin is excited to direct Hummingbird's kitchen program. When not in the kitchen, he can be found at home with his girlfriend, and their 3 cats and 1 dog, sipping a Busch Light. 

Mairin Moore - GM | Sommelier

Mairin has worked in hospitality in Tallahassee for the last 12 years and is passionate about wine, cheese, and community involvement! She loves providing a welcoming atmosphere for people to learn about and enjoy wine and each other’s company. Mairin started on the CMS track, but has switched over to the WSET, and attempts to learn something new about wine every day! Her professional background includes fine dining service, management, bartending, catering, and private events. In her free time, you can catch her outside: gardening, on the water, foraging, or hiking. She also enjoys cooking, pairing wine and food, and generally discussing all things related to eating drinking, and traveling!

Greg Hajcak - Proprietor | Sommelier

Greg is a Professor of Psychology and Biomedical Sciences at Florida State University, where he studies the brain in relation to anxiety and depression. He is WSET Level 3 wine certified, and currently working on his WSET Level 4 Diploma. Greg oversees wine curation at Hummingbird, and hosts guided tastings.  

"I’m excited to build a community around wine in Tallahassee.  I really love the social aspect of wine exploration - getting together to figure out what you do and do not like to drink, and discovering new wines to love." - Greg
