Paul Baldi

Lead sommelier/manager at Hi neighbor

My name is Paul Baldi, I’m originally from Reims ( nobody is able to say it properly) in champagne.

I’m a passionate and Curious Sommelier. I use to work mostly in fine dining and Michelin stars restaurants over France.

I had my first experience in USA in 2018 at Bar Creen in San Francisco.  Today I’m working for the Vault on 555 California. Im big fan of champagne growers , and Chenin blanc and Syrah lover.
