Featured WG Manager

Tyler received a bachelor’s degree in communications from Lindenwood University in May of 2016. Upon realizing that his passion was guest service, Tyler stopped pursuing a career in graphic design, in pursuit of a position in the more social bar scene. Tyler rose through the ranks from Bus Boy to Bar Manager over the course of 3 years in the industry. His favorite part of bartending is taking care of his guests and creating special moments for his guests to remember.

Landing a career at the acclaimed winery The Weingarten in March of 2019, Tyler shifted focus and refined his palette from a beer drinker to a wine enthusiast.  Tyler’s favorite items on the WG’s food menu are the Spinach & Artichoke Rangoon, and the Grown-up Grilled Cheese with Tomato Bisque. His favorite wine option is the PJ Valkenburg Dornfelder and the Kung Fu Girl Riesling. On his days off, you will find him with his wife Kara and their two pups Winston and Reinhardt, trying out new recipes at home, or with friends enjoying cocktails and wine on a patio.
