MICHAEL LAGAU . Certified Sommelier
I am a Bay Area native who has been working in luxury hospitality for the last 20 years. In 2010, I became a Level 2 Certified Sommelier (through The Court of Masters Sommeliers). I fell in love with wine in 2001, while managing a small wine bar in La Jolla, Ca. After discovering the amazing diversity in wines, I was hooked!
I developed my passion for personalized service while working in Michelin star restaurants and top rated hotels, such as The Four Seasons and The Fairmont. I've also had the privilege of working with talented chefs such as Huber Keller (Fleur de Lys) and Daniel Patterson (Coi) which is where I honed my wine and food pairing skills. I'm now dedicated full time to pairing guests with the perfect wineries. I have been coming up to Napa and Sonoma since 1997. I absolutely love bringing people to my favorite places here in Wine Country, special places that I would bring my family and close friends.
I love sharing my knowledge of San Francisco and the diverse surround areas. Whether locally in San Francisco, Wine Country, or the Pacific Coast Highway. I look forward to creating that special and memorable day for you.
KELLY EVANS . Advanced Sommelier
During his short time in San Francisco, Kelly Evans has risen quickly through the ranks of the city’s esteemed hospitality scene. His drive to learn from the best in the country lead him to San Francisco from Houston, TX, so that he could completely immerse himself in the wine and restaurant industries.
Evans’ Bay Area career was initiated at Michael Mina and Rajat Parr’s RN74, before moving on to the three-Michelin-starred Saison, where he served as Head Sommelier, managing the daily operations of the wine program and selecting a diverse series of beverage pairings to work symbiotically with a cuisine rarely equaled in composition. From there, Evans simultaneously served as General Manager and Wine Director of Chef Jason Fox’s Oro restaurant, before it shuttered in July 2016. As General Manager of Lazy Bear, Evans worked closely with Chef David Barzelay to uphold the two-Michelin-star caliber of fine-dining standards while still maintaining the casual and festive tone that the former pop up had always championed.
Dedicated to expanding his knowledge of wine and service, Evans passed the Advanced Exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2016 and will soon be taking the Master’s Exam. Evans now brings his experience and expertise to Bin415, where he aims to create an unparalleled Napa Valley experience which satisfies his guest’s desire for knowledge and more importantly, a good time.
PAIGE FIELDS . Personal Concierge
I've lived in the San Francisco Bay Area my entire life. I started my career in the high-end restaurant industry in my early 20's. Having mastered the art of multi-tasking and providing excellent customer service under pressure in these high-end environments, I eventually transitioned my skills over to the hospitality industry as a Concierge.
For over a decade I've worked as a Concierge at Starwood and Kimpton hotels with the last six years of those at the world renowned Four Seasons in San Francisco. I have since created a network within San Francisco and beyond, one in particular being Michael Lagau, owner of Bin 415.
During my time at the Four Seasons, so many guests looked for assistance in visiting the Wine Country. My top suggestion was always to visit the valley with Bin 415. Guests consistently returned to the hotel after their tour commenting that their time with Bin 415 was best part of their visit.
Allow me to use my experiences to connect you with all that the San Francisco Bay Area has to offer. I look forward to being your go-to personal Concierge for this fine city.
