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.
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. For her, the weirder the wine, the more fun it is! She is excited to provide Tallahassee with some of the best hand selected wines, while making Hummingbird a space where anyone can come have a unique, informative, and fun wine experience.
Traylor's background ranges from Music Business to Coffee Wholesaling, and is excited to bring his varied knowledge to team Hummingbird! As one of our Sommeliers, he's passed his WSET 2 Certification, and is currently obsessed with learning about the Bourgogne region. You can find him helping customers on the floor, organizing our wine club selections, managing our social media and hosting events!
Ezekiel “Zeke” Joiner is a senior at Florida State University studying English-Creative Writing. Although he's our chef, he's on his way to becoming a certified somm through the WSET 2 curriculum. He is food-obsessed, and hopes to contribute to our great local food scene as a Tallahassee native. When he isn’t testing recipes or writing stand-up comedy, he can be found fishing or foraging for mushrooms.
Greg is a Professor of Psychology at Florida State University, where he studies the the brain, in relation to anxiety and depression. He loves to surf and learn about wine (he is WSET Level 3 wine certified). Greg is excited to build a community around wine in Tallahassee, and helps curate the wine lists. He hosts guided tastings, and the blind tasting league night with Traylor. "The most exciting thing about Hummingbird is the social aspect of wine exploration - getting together to figure out what you do and do not like to drink, building a community for discovering new wines to love." - Greg
