Kaitlyn Caruke and Chloe Grigri, the wine duo selecting your September wines, started their careers cities apart — Kaitlyn in New York, serving at local wine icons like Pearl & Ash and Rebelle, and Chloe in Philadelphia, first in the fashion industry and then the restaurant world when she opened the Good King Tavern in 2013, in partnership with her father. In 2018, Kaitlyn was named an Eater Young Gun and one of Wine & Spirit’s best new sommeliers, and in 2019, Chloe was identified as a rising star in Philly’s wine world.
It was that year that Chloe tapped Kaitlyn to join the opening team of Le Caveau, a French bar à vins upstairs from the Good King Tavern. Shortly after opening its doors, Le Caveau received a James Beard nomination for outstanding wine program. Together, the pair are regarded as driving forces of the growing wine scene in Philly.
