Sommelier, e11evenToronto-native Nick Chajoglou is a seasoned veteran of all aspects of the restaurant industry. His first introduction into it came in 1993 when he took a serving position at Toronto-based restaurant chain Diana Sweets. It was here that Chajoglou found himself taking on the role of bartender and soon after fell in love with the trade. After working as a General Manager and taking on many other roles within the industry, Chajoglou's passion for beverages and wine was heightened when he took a trip to Italy and immersed himself in the rich and historic food and wine culture in 2008. Upon his return Chajoglou had a new purpose and new challenge, in 2010 he enrolled into the Canadian's Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) program at George Brown College and 2011 started an internship at e11even. During his tenure at e11even he took the next step in mastering this craft and passed the Court of Masters and earned his Sommelier certification. He has been e11even's resident sommelier for 3 years and looks forward to revitalizing the beverage program with local, freshly-sourced ingredients. When Chajoglou is not creating new cocktails and further exploring the world of wine and spirits, he enjoys disc golfing, the outdoors, cooking, painting, playing the harmonica and taking in live music shows.
