John Cappiello

Wine Cellar Master

John is a Connecticut native, having moved to Rhode Island in 2012 to attend Johnson and Wales where he received degrees in Culinary Arts and Food Service management in 2016. While attending JWU, John was Gracie’s Garde Manger chef from 2013-2014. Cappiello received the prestigious Kopf Scholarship presented by the Kobrand Corporation/Kopf Foundation which is awarded to students who show exceptional interest and skill in fine wines and restaurant management. After graduation, Cappiello moved from the kitchen to the dining room, where his passion for service and beverage flourished. John has been a part of Gracie’s dining room since 2015 and began working closely with the then beverage manager, until stepping into the role of Cellar Master in 2018. He is a Certified Sommelier from the Court of Master Sommeliers (2016) and has received his WSET level two certification (2016) 

John has fostered relationships with importers and gotten to know many producers over the years, carefully curating a wine list that is reflective of quality vintages, benchmark producers, rare finds, and obscure small producers. With a deep understanding of the intricacies of the kitchen and an innate talent for sourcing and pairing wines, Cappiello has made a name for himself growing with Gracie’s over the years.
