Josh Adler Portrait

Joshua Adler


Josh learned about wine the old-fashioned way - tasting Pinot Noir in 18th-century cellars in Burgundy’s Côte d’Or. After a stint leading bicycle tours in French wine regions, he worked as the wine director at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco and Restaurant Spring in Paris before starting Paris Wine Company in 2012. After bravely battling pancreatic cancer for seven months, Josh passed away on 25 February 2022 in his beloved city of Paris. The Paris Wine Company team misses him greatly and is dedicated to carrying on his legacy in everything that they do. For a beautiful memory, you can listen here to Levi Dalton’s 2014 interview with Josh for his podcast, I’ll Drink to That, Episode #193.

She initially moved to Paris to finish a B.A/M.A. in Political Science from Johns Hopkins and Sciences Po, and has lived in Paris for over 10 years. She joined Paris Wine Company in early 2014.

Patrick Eid

Sales Relationship Assistant / Distributor Relations

Patrick joined Paris Wine Company in 2022 after cultivating a taste for wine (and the diversity of their regional and stylistic differences) after working in bars, restaurants, and wine shops in various countries before moving to Paris with his family in 2018. On quiet evenings, he enjoys meticulously pairing wines with novels and poetry - with mixed results.


Gregory Slater

Operations Intern

After growing up on a vineyard in the Willamette Valley, Gregory spent a semester of college in Paris where he fell in love with the French “joie de vivre”. After ski bumming in Oregon and Utah, he got a job at Alexana Winery, then moved to Montana to sell wine. Now finishing a Masters in Wine & Spirits Management from Kedge BS Bordeaux, Gregory’s ultimate wine & food pairing is green enchiladas and a high-acid, off-dry, aromatic Riesling with some age.


Vicki Denig

Media & Marketing

After working for a French company in New York, Vicki transitioned into the world of wine retail and journalism, which eventually led her down a rabbit hole of wine-focused content creation, marketing, and social media management.
