Spadafore has spent over 35 years in the adult beverage trade. After retiring as Director of Education for a major wine and spirits wholesaler in Phoenix, AZ, he founded Spada4Solutions LLC. He will use his wealth of experience in the hotel/restaurant & wine and spirits industry to plan, create and deliver any type of wine and spirits educational program. He completely understands that for education to be effective, it must also be entertaining. Spadafore’s passion is evidenced by his involvement in the Society of Wine Educators. A 30+ year member, he passed the difficult certification examination on his first attempt to earn his Certified Wine Educator (CWE) credential. There are fewer than 400 active CWE’s in the world. He also holds the Certified Specialist of Spirits (CSS) credential. Spadafore is very active in the Society of Wine Educators. In addition to presenting sessions at the SWE annual conference, he is a past Board member, Executive Committee member and Education Liaison.
