More on Mike:  

Mike Smith, New England Market Manager for Olé & Obrigado, has been selling wine for almost 20 years, 6 of which have been with Olé & Obrigado.  He first fell in love with Spain and Portugal in the late 2000s, when he took a trip to Spain with Olé as a buyer for a retailer, and knew that he wanted to work for the company that helped him discover the Iberian peninsula.  Mike loves the stories and people behind the wines he represents, and is proud to sell “wines with an address” – wines made by hand, by real people who work the vineyards themselves and want to provide a snapshot of their own backyards.  A former professional cook, Mike loves the intrinsic relationship between food and wine, and enjoys showcasing the unexpected ways that each can elevate the other.  When he’s not working, he can often be found in the kitchen with his wife and daughter, or in the woods with his two dogs.
