James

James Andrews

Wine Manager / Sommelier
James has spent over 30 years training, selling and educating others about wine and spirits in the restaurants, nightclubs and retail venues. He began working in restaurants while putting himself through college in Kansas City and despite completing two degrees in fine arts and commercial arts, his passion for food and wine drew him to the hospitality field as a life-long career.

In 1995 everything changed when he met Doug Frost-Master Sommelier and Master of Wine who became both a great friend and mentor.

In 1999 James passed the examination to become a certified sommelier, accredited by The Court of Master Sommeliers.

He succeeded Doug Frost as Sommelier at the prestigious American Restaurant in Kansas City and worked there as both General Manager and Sommelier until moving to Tulsa in 2003 to become managing partner at Polo Grill.

He eventually owned and operated several ventures of his own, including Osage Restaurant at Gilcrease Museum, Calistoga Bar and Grill in Jenks and Ciao Restaurant and Jazz Club in Brookside for 12 years.

After previously working as a manager at Parkhill’s Liquor and Wine at 51st and Lewis, he accepted the position as wine manager/sommelier at Parkhill’s South Liquors and Wine in 2015.
