About Michael Jordan
He is known as the “Sommelier of the People.”
He is Michael Jordan (no, not the former basketball star), a resident of the Orange County, Calif. community of Costa Mesa, who has developed consumer friendly wine lists for a number of restaurants, including the Beachcomber Restaurant Group and the acclaimed Napa Rose at the Disneyland Resort.
As a master sommelier, his knowledge of wine is second to none — with the possible exception of his wife, Teresa. Together, they have been making their own world-class wines from top growing regions for several years under the Word Vineyards label. Now, they have introduced another label, Olelo, which means “word” in Jordan’s homeland of Hawaii.
