Born and raised in North Carolina, Abbey moved to New York City to step out of her comfort zone after graduating from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Psychology and Women’s Studies. Here in New York, Abbey fell in love with the service industry during her time working at Eataly. After spending several years as a server, she was promoted to the beverage team and founded her interest in the wine industry. She took several course certifications with American Sommelier before starting here at T. Elenteny Imports to further her knowledge and understanding of how the industry works. She may specialize in Italian Wines, but is happy to drink anything with a little funk. Bring on the orange wines!
