HOUSTON and surrounding areas


Steve Nasser (Houston)

With over 30 years in the restaurant and wine business in Washington, DC and Houston, Steve brings many experiences to Vintage Select Wines. In addition to wine sales, at one time he also served as a manager and as a food and beverage director which gives him perspective on both the buying and selling side.

In the mid 1980’s, Steve gained experience in retail area when he owned a liquor store. He began his career on the distribution side in the late 1980’s and has worked for several different distributors where he had exposure to a wide variety of wines and expanded not only his knowledge, but began the process of getting to know the people behind the wines. It was on this distribution side that Buddy and Steve first worked together and have maintained their relationship for over 20 years.

Steve brings an old world charm to his approach with his customers. He believes in loyalty and does not hesitate to go the extra mile to serve. His extensive wine knowledge and skills in building relationships make him a great asset.

Gretchen Reeves (Houston)

Like many people that end up in the wine business, Gretchen Reeves started out as a passionate wine consumer and then casually (and only half-jokingly) asked a friend one day "if one could make a living drinking wine all day."  As it turn out, the answer was yes and the rest is history. 
Gretchen has worked in many positions in the wine industry since 2003.  Retail Sales was her first position, but since then she has worked as a sales rep for several distributors, as a wine bar designer, and most recently as a buyer.  Her experience as both a wholesale rep and as a buyer in the wine business gives her a unique perspective and insight into serving her accounts, because as she jokes, "I've walked a little in everybody's shoes."
She professes a special love for small boutique producers...those who retain a hands on approach to their vineyards and wines and who still get excited when a customer discovers their wine and shares personal details about the occasion at which the wine was consumed.  Perhaps it's her small town up-bringing, or her lack of exposure to a corporate sales mentality, but for her, the people and the stories behind the wine are sometimes as important as the wine itself. 
Gretchen happily joins Vintage Select and considers herself lucky to be back pounding the pavement in Houston and calling on some of the finest restaurants and wine shops in the city.  She's come full circle and embraces her new position often saying..."I'm not just selling wine...I'm selling memories."
