7/7/2021 - A Warm Welcome to In Higher Spirits

The Town Of Fairfield together with The Fairfield Chamber of Commerce is happy to welcome In Higher Spirits to town!  Their formal welcome Ribbon Cutting was on Friday, July 9, 2021. The official ceremony was officiated by First Selectwoman Brenda Kupchick.

Owner, Joel Lall, selected Fairfield to open his new business, stating “Fairfield is a great family community. My wife, Kristin, and I moved here from Stamford, to start a family. Our kids go to McKinley Elementary School, and we live remarkably close by. When the opportunity presented itself, we could not pass it up. We are a neighborhood business and are proud to serve our community.”

Joel has an extensive background as a sommelier, bringing a high-level of expertise to his customer base, helping to advise his customers on proper wine selections, based on their needs and price points.

Joel continues, “As a sommelier I have a passion for wines and years of experience managing restaurant and hotels in the lower Fairfield County.  For over 23 years, and after working for one of the largest wine and spirit distributor for the past 17+ years, we decided to share that knowledge and passion with the community we love and are a part of. I have conducted numerous wine dinners, wine seminars and wine education classes for all types of restaurants, and now we can bring that experience to you. Soon we will conduct wine education and food pairing classes.”
