Meet the Team
Joe Watson, Wine Program Director
Joe has worked in every facet of the food chain before joining us here at Rosemont in 2019 as our Wine Director. His food journey began by managing an organic livestock farm in Vermont, then completing a butcher apprenticeship before heading off to the French Culinary Institute in New York. He’s now found himself among the shelves of our markets selecting wine for you to enjoy, or behind the bar at Thompson’s Point tasting a new discovery with customers. He’s happy to chat wine, food, or farming any time, and is always available to hear suggestions for the ever-evolving wine program here at Rosemont Market & Bakery.
Olivia Eckerson, Wine Bar Assistant Manager
After graduating from Northeastern University with a B.A. in English, Olivia spent a few weeks in Tuscany working on a biodynamic vineyard. The beauty of the landscape and process left her entranced, and she quickly realized that this was the career she wanted to pursue. Upon returning to the states, Olivia worked harvest at an urban winery in Boston followed by a large-scale producer in New Zealand. Most recently, she worked in Napa Valley as a wine educator for a luxury brand. Today, she is putting down roots in Maine to be closer to home. You can find Olivia at the Rosemont Wine Bar enjoying good conversation, wine, and community.
