Anton Maletich

Go-Wine Strategic Director of Sales and Education

Sommelier and Wine Director

Background & Experience

Anton Maletich's pedigree was founded in his childhood interest in cooking and the culinary world. He watched his Mother and his Grandfather make dishes like gravy and lamb on the spit. By his 19th birthday he was learning great old school bartending techniques from his father.

"I was there, observing, listening, soaking it all up, this began my journey into the world of restaurants and hospitality.", says Anton. His life experience includes working with the Ritz Carlton in Chicago and as Director of Operations and creator of Spanish Wine programs for Emilio Gervilla, "The Leader of the Tapas Movement in Chicago". Most recently The Wine Spectator has honored Anton’s work at Suzette’s Creperie in Wheaton, Illinois. Under his vision, the wine list has earned the prestigious Wine Spectator Award for five consecutive years.

As a Sommelier and Wine Director I've strived to create an unpretentious and friendly atmosphere at the table. My object is to make wine knowledge and its service unstuffy and approachable. Through the years he has been an enthusiastic gardener, growing many of his own organic fruits and vegetables. It has been a rewarding experience and he has made a connection with the earth which rewards him not only with a bounty for the table, but also a raison d'etre. He loves sharing the dishes, techniques and lore that he has accumulated over the years with his guests.

We are honored to have Anton as our Director of Sales and Education.
