25 Things You Didn’t Know About Victoria Levin

  1. I was born in St Petersburg, Russia. My parents and I lived in communal apartments, dorms, studios, and on friends’ and family’s couches, but we went to the Hermitage for free every Sunday.
  2. I am absolutely terrified of ferrets.
  3. My husband and I have a snorty, adorable pug named Delila whom we saved from an awful place. She has more energy than you can imagine and is scared of plastic bags.
  4. I have been playing piano pretty much since I could walk. I still play often, with bands or as an accompanist or a singer/songwriter.
  5. I love the Seattle Seahawks!
  6. I lived throughout Europe as a child. I speak three languages fluently, some conversationally, and true restaurant Spanish.
  7. My grandmother was an opera singer and my mama was a ballerina.
  8. Hospitality, wine, leadership and financial analysis – to combine my professional passions here at Landmarc is amazing.
  9. Raspberries make me very happy.
  10. I could sit, read and people watch in a good coffee shop all day.
  11. I have led private and public wine tastings, written beverage manuals, waxed poetic with master sommeliers and created a constantly rotating Wine Spectator wine list. I am humbled and driven by my passion for wine daily.
  12.  I love exploring this city, alone or with my husband Bryan – we often walk from the UWS to the East Village and everywhere in between. If someone is singing, playing, or dancing, I must stop and appreciate, bad or good.
  13. I can’t drink anything sparkling – soda, beer, champagne (sad but true).
  14. I am part of a charity called Children International. I have co-adopted a little girl in India who now has food in her belly, clothes to wear and toys to play with!
  15. I went to school for theatre, English and women’s studies.
  16. I have far too many weird random allergies to name.
  17. I was a DJ dancer for Bar Mitzvahs and weddings in high school and was Musical Director of an award winning a cappella group in college.
  18. Watching someone do, use or discover something that I have shown or taught them and then seeing the smile of satisfaction on their face makes my heart melt.
  19. My favorite wine region is Priorat. Every sip is a total body experience.
  20. I am a huge bargain hunter – thrift shop, vintage stores, flea markets, tag sales – for home goods, clothing, and an absolutely insane amount of accessories. (Sorry Bryan.)
  21. One of the only bad grades I ever received was in AP Biology my sophomore year in high school. I am still upset about it.
  22. My number one travel dream is to go to Spain!
  23. My long-time best friend’s stepfather is a professional tattoo fixer. He gave us both Jewish star tattoos when we turned 18. I will love mine forever.

  25. One might describe me as verbose.
