Marika Vida-Arnold is the Wine Director of the Ritz-Carlton Central Park New York City and also has her own consulting business, Vida et Fils.
Marika discusses her strategies for balancing sommelier work with her priorities as a mother of two children. How does she find balance with her schedule, commitments, and budgets to best get to the sort of life she wants for herself and her family? What are the important ins and outs of working with wine in a luxury hotel? And what needs to be kept in mind when operating as a wine consultant? Marika addresses all of those topics, and gives plenty of straight from the heart advice to those parents who have made wine their career.
