Cellar Staff


Connor is a native Pittsburgher who started making wine at home with his father, even before he could legally drink! As he continued to pursue chemistry at the University of Pittsburgh, it became clear that his passion was wine production. Connor pays many visits to the Cellar’s California suppliers and travels internationally to explore all aspects of wine education. But most of all, Connor loves seeing guests visit R Wine Cellar to enjoy R wines!

Her hobby is learning languages, with Russian being the third she’s studied, following German and Portuguese. Outside of the Cellar on Penn, Jillian enjoys a nice glass of Carménère to help her get some inspiration for her newest paintings and illustrations.

Nick’s family was in the wine & liquor business in Delaware since before he was born, and now he’s very excited to provide our customers with the unique wine experiences the Cellar on Penn offers. Nick’s day is not complete without great wine and great music. His favorite wine is our Carménère but be sure to ask him about making cocktails with our Margaret apple spice wine! If you like the music you hear during your visit, be sure to ask him about it.


Noah is a Pittsburgh native and bustling visual artist. When he isn’t pouring glasses of Carménère and Fume Blanc, you can typically find him working a camera on whatever project fits his fancy that week. Noah loves taking pictures of drinks almost as much as he enjoys tasting them, and the Cellar on Penn certainly has no lack of options!

R Wine Cellar is a proud Pittsburgh, PA winery joining the many Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania wineries to produce handcrafted wines in affiliation with the Pennsylvania Winery Association. www.pennsylvaniawine.com
