Cat Stephani

  • Associate Specialist, Fine Wine Sales
New York


After over a decade immersed in the rich culture of New York City fine dining, Cat joined Sotheby’s Wine in 2021, bringing her vast experience as a sommelier, beverage director, and wine educator at some of the top beverage programs across the country to the Sotheby’s Retail Wine Department.

From humble beginnings as a cellar hand for Laurent Tourondel, to her work with three Michelin-starred wine lists, Cat is thrilled to now be sharing her visceral expertise of the fine wine world directly with Sotheby’s clients. She brings a tailored approach to a wide range of curation, inspired by the culture, history, and sense of place that a glass of wine somehow tethers and invites us together to share.

“What drew me to working with Sotheby’s was very simple. You have an unparalleled selection at your fingertips. The immediacy of storied classics alongside emerging lights of both traditional and developing wine regions offers a rare and rewarding sense of discovery, one I have never been able to resist.”

Cat holds a Level II Certification through the Court of Master Sommeliers as well as a Level III Advanced Certification through WSET, where she is currently pursuing the Diploma Program.
