Judd Smith, wine ninja with a wizard beard.


So here’s what you need to know: I’ve got Louisiana in my blood, booze on the brain and a gnarly beard on my face. Finding new wines, cool beers, great whiskey and killer cocktails in my northwest corner of Louisiana is kinda my thing. Being obsessive and nerdy about the most delicious things in life is why I’m here.

On to the formal stuffs: my name is Judd Smith and I’ve worked in the beverage industry for about 8 years mainly focusing in fine wine, craft beer and spirits. I am the Beverage Director for Cadre Hospitality Group(Wine Country Bistro & Bottle Shops, Zocolo, Southern Fork Catering) and we specialize in Southern Hospitality.

Everything posted on or associated with Beard and Barrel is completely my opinion. I don’t know everything but I definitely try to.
