Sheila McNeil, Owner and General Manager, has over 25 years’ experience in the wine industry and has learned about wine and spirits from the ground up. She began her career long before wine was the popular part of American culture that it is today. Sheila has managed Wine & Sprits of Slingerlands since 1997 and has a well-deserved reputation as an expert in a field once dominated by men. She is a member of the Chaine des Rotisseurs, the Jack Daniels Single Barrel Society, and the proud recipient of the 2000 Retailer of the Year Award from the New York State Grape & Wine Foundation. Sheila tastes every wine she sells and is an educator as well as a purveyor of fine wine and spirits. Sheila's favorite cocktail is a classic Martini and her favorite wines are Champagne and Chardonnay. Upon tasting a spine-tingling wine, she has been known to say...it's a beautiful thing!
