Laura DePasQuale - Master Sommelier

As Vice President, Fine Wine Development, at Palm Bay International, DePasquale heads a fast-growing team of specialized fine wine sales personnel for a company now ranked among the top five wine importers nationwide. The creation of Palm Bay’s Fine Wine Division dates back to 2004, soon after DePasquale passed a rigorous series of exams that earned her the right to add the initials MS(Master Sommelier) after her name. In the process she joined an elite group of Master Sommeliers worldwide, becoming the 13th woman to achieve the title since the examinations were first set in 1969.
