Charlie Arturaola

Speciality Wines

Charlie Arturaola has dedicated his life’s work to serving, informing, educating, and entertaining people around the world about wine, becoming an internationally renowned sommelier. This rare gift has guided Arturaola for almost 30 years in his wine career. Arturaola has communicated about wine in all ways imaginable, from sommelier, corporate wine director to teacher, mentor, appraiser, contestant judge, actor, and president of his own wine consulting and appraising firm, Grappolo Blu Inc. based in Miami Beach, Florida. Arturaola helped mold the next generation of sommeliers, wine teachers and wine lovers by mentoring students pursuing Masters degrees in hospitality at Johnson & Wales Campus “The Wine School” and Lynn University in Florida. At the moment, he is promoting his second wine-film “The Duel of Wine” in North America and Europe.
