Ieva Aldins

Yoga Instructor

Ieva Aldins fell in love with wine while working in some of San Francisco’s most impassioned restaurants such as Delfina, Jardiniere and Boulevard. Since her first staff trip to Napa, she was hooked. In 2009 Nantucket called her back to its shores. She first became a sommelier at American Seasons and thrived working with their award-winning, domestic wine list. She is a certified sommelier, a member of the Boston Sommelier Society and is currently the Wine Director at The Club Car. Her service style is approachable, elegant and knowledgable with a knack for figuring out people’s palates. She believes a good bottle of wine is full of stories, landscapes and poetry that are meant to be pondered, but mostly enjoyed and taste best when shared.
