About Kenesha Hughes
My name is Kenesha. Go Spartans! Great! Now that that’s off everyone’s mind, we can get to the juicy stuff. Wine! I started off like most wine-curious consumers in Flint, Michigan purchasing some of the finest of white zinfandels and ‘Reunite’ Lambrusco by the gallons from my local Meijer thinking my pinky up made it classier. Working in the hospitality 15+ years has graciously allowed me to taste many different wines and learn from the expansively knowledgeable Sommeliers, Beverage directors and wine aficionados I now get to call my mentors and friends. Desperately wanting to know the ‘what’s and whys’ of wine lead me to my own personal Sommelier journey in some of Washington, DC’s top restaurants. I currently host a wine segment called ‘The Tasting Room’ on a PBS show called ‘Check,Please! DC’. I have a passion for education and teaching in this wine world and I can’t wait for you to join me on this never ending grape adventure to find you your new favorite wine! Cheers!
