Meet Steve "Steve-O" Muelken
Growing up in St. Louis, Missouri, the home of Budweiser, I never dreamed loving wine, but now I'm a certified "cork dork!" I've always been social, and what I love most about wine is how it brings people together. A bottle of wine is meant to be shared among friends.
By day, I have a career in Finance for an Irvine, CA-based healthcare company, but Vino with Steve-O is a reflection of my true passion: sharing my knowledge of wine with others.
How was Vino with Steve-O started?
A close friend suggested that I hold an educational wine night at his house and a great time was had by all!
