Meet the Owners
Sang and Camille
Sang K Chhoeuk
Owner and Wine Apprentice
Sang is originally from Cambodia and was sponsored & brought over to America through local charities here in Worcester. He then grew up just two houses down from The Wine Vine in Worcester & went to Doherty High School and has a Bachelor of Finance from Nichols College. He worked two jobs to put himself through college at night and is where Sang & Camille met.
After their long days of work and night school they often would go out at night for dinner and a glass of wine where they realized that they both shared a common love for good wine & good food. The two wanted to share it with others in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. This inspired them to open their own wine boutique and offer great yet affordable wines in addition to collectable wines that everyone could enjoy in a relaxing, warm and welcoming environment.
Sang brings his many years of cost accountant expertise along with his personable service where his love for wine comes to life. He has been certified as an official Wine Apprentice by “The Wine Spectator” for his gained knowledge of the wine industry. He is constantly following, studying & researching the newest wines and is well apprised of good vintages. Sang is also very well known for finding and special ordering hard-to-find wines for his customers.
All wine is personnally hand-picked and tasted under careful consideration before bringing it into The Wine Vine’s portfolio. Sang’s real gift is not only knowing his customers by their names, but also listening, learning and understanding their likes and dislikes; he is able to find just the right wine for their individual palates with his friendly and down-to-earth approach.
