Bio: Steve Wildy, Co-Founder
After spending his early childhood in Northern Ireland, Steve Wildy began his career in the restaurant industry at an early age as a dishwasher at a friend's family restaurant. He immediately fell for the hustle and bustle of the culinary world, and after relocating to Philadelphia in the late 90s to enroll in Drexel University’s International Studies program, he continued to work up the ladder in the restaurant field. An internship with the European Parliament in Brussels introduced him to a fantastic food scene, the world's best beer, and to the early notion that a career in food and beverage might be better suited to him than a career as a politician.
After a stint in specialty food service procuring fine cheeses and other gourmet food items for restaurants, Steve became the General Manager for Vetri, Marc Vetri’s eponymous flagship Italian restaurant, widely recognized as one of the cornerstone institutions of the United States’ Italian fine dining scene. As the Vetri Family grew in size, a love for wine led to Steve’s transition to Beverage Director, and again to a Director of Operations. In 2015-2016 he facilitated the integration of all platforms and standards throughout the company’s acquisition by Urban Outfitters, Inc, where he stayed on through 2020 and oversaw numerous new store openings across five states. He co-founded Mad Wild Wine to further focus on his love for connecting people to memorable wine experiences.

Accolades & Appearances
Steve was recognized as one of Food & Wine’s 2015 “Sommeliers of the Year” and nominated by the James Beard Foundation as a semi-finalist in the category of “Outstanding Wine, Beer, or Spirits Professional” in the same year. He previously oversaw the Vetri front of house team that received consecutive “Outstanding Service” finalist nominations in 2008, 2009, and 2010. In 2016 he was named a laureate of the highly competitive La Paulee Scholarship program celebrating education and ambassadorship of the fine wines of Burgundy. His writing has appeared in numerous culinary and beverage publications and he has guested on various podcasts about the beverage industry.
