Meet the Director of Wine, Jonathan Feiler

Jonathan Feiler is Group Director of Wine for Ocean House Management Collection, including the Forbes Five-Star Ocean House, the award winning Weekapaug Inn, Watch Hill Inn and Inn at Hastings Park.

Under Feiler’s direction, the Ocean House wine collection includes selections from the most important growing regions and hidden gems from around the world, allowing Ocean House to offer a comprehensive hands-on wine experience that is both approachable and unpretentious for the casual wine drinker and the connoisseur alike.

A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York, Feiler has extensive experience with food and a profound passion for wine. He began his professional career at Maison Robert in Boston where the world of wine first piqued his interest. His career accelerated at the renowned Commanders Palace in New Orleans where he was quickly promoted from Captain to Sommelier of their sister restaurant, Café Adelaide. Feiler moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where he took the position of Sommelier at Bartolotta Ristorante di Mare at the Wynn Resort, a Forbes Four-Star restaurant. When Encore Las Vegas opened, Feiler was promoted to Wine Manager at the Sinatra Restaurant. There he received a Wine Spectator Best of Award of Excellence for his extensive Italian-focused wine list. After being away from the East Coast for more than 10 years, Feiler returned home to his roots.

Prior to his current position at Ocean House, he served as the Director of Wine Education, Head Sommelier and Director of Food & Beverage at Ocean House. He was also the fine wine business development manager for Rhode Island Distributing.

Feiler rejoined the Ocean House organization in October 2018, where he oversees the wine and beverage program and practices a wine philosophy centered on versatility and approachability. He also is responsible for a full program of beverage education classes for individuals and groups.
