We hear your dad’s pretty cool, so we put together a little thing so he can hang with us! Check out this virtual Father’s Day experience slated for June 19th at 4:00 p.m. MST.
Beehive’s Heather Cox and Sommelier James Santangelo of the Wine Academy of Utah are hosting an interactive Zoom tasting for all the cool dads out there. Together they will walk dad through a pairing of different whiskey styles with our Family of Cheese gift offering.
Really, this event is for anybody who wants to join and talk whiskey and cheese.
Step 1: Purchase a Family of Cheese or an Extended Family of Cheese and have it delivered dad’s door (or yours).

James’s wine career started at a hot dog stand in New York state. Fancy, right?!
Working the grill during the humid summers in Western New York, he’d greet customers as they arrived by shouting, “Whatcha want? Whatcha got?”— and the banter between the ‘grill man’ and customers began. After moving to Salt Lake City, he traded the charcoal grill for fine dining.
James fell in love with the fast-paced environment of the floors of Utah’s top-rated restaurants. He quickly made the decision to continue his culinary education, being especially motivated by wine’s power to enhance the dining experience. He took that passion and excitement with him into his studies to become a certified Sommelier and an Educator.
Now instead of “How many dogs?” it’s “How ‘bout a little ‘splishy splash’ to get you started tonight?”
A decade later and James now has an internationally recognized wine academy, his Wine Academy of Utah. Both Katie Schall and Chef Heather Cox of Beehive Cheese have even achieved their WSET Level 1 Wine Certification through the Academy! We know first-hand Jim’s awesomeness.
