Dear Ms. Carey:
I am writing to apply for your position in wine wholesale as advertised on Crimson Careers. This
exciting opportunity appears to be a wonderful fit with my professional experience, personal
interests, and career goals.
I am returning to Boston to complete my final year at Harvard University Extension School,
where I am majoring in French and economics. Having spent the year working and traveling, I am
eager to incorporate myself once again into the local wine community, to which I can bring
experience in a number of sectors of the industry.
Through eight years in the restaurant field, I have acquired a deep love of and appreciation for
wine and cuisine. I have been known to wax rhapsodic over specials; nothing made me happier
than discussing a bottle with a table. This enthusiasm allowed me to introduce a list of reserve
selections to Shay’s Pub and Wine Bar. The result was an appreciable increase in sales for the
restaurant and repeat attendance by customers. My position at Aspen's award-winning Montagna
allowed me to expand upon my knowledge of wine, locally inspired cuisine, and the highest
standards of service. Our weekly blind-tastings fueled my desire to further myself in this field,
and I am in the process of acquiring certification through both the Court of Master Sommeliers
and the Wine Spirit and Education Trust.
Most recently, I have returned from France where I was lucky enough to work on an organic
vineyard in Beaujolais. I adored working with the young, dynamic, vigneron who ran the estate,
the largest of its kind in the region. A position at your wholesale wine company would allow me
to draw upon this experience and to facilitate the success of such producers. Additionally, it
would enable me to replicate the most enjoyable components of my experience overall: working
with my colleagues in the local restaurant industry, as well as with distinctive, iconoclastic wine-
I am readily available via email or phone in order to arrange an interview, and have attached my
resume below per your request. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I
appreciate your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.
