Our Founder

 

 

KellySOMM is a Las Vegas-based digital e-commerce wine retail company founded by Kelly Ford Lau, an alum of UNLV Hotel College and Wine & Spirits Magazine's "Best New Sommeliers of 2010". Rooted in Kelly's three passions: beverage, hospitality, and technology. The curated subscription and bottle shop primarily focuses on delivering low-intervention and natural wines directly to your doorstep. Each box is personally curated and hand-packed to astound all your senses and pique your curiosity about low-intervention and natural wines. During her lead sommelier tenures, she worked with notable chef-driven venues such as Delmonico by Emeril Lagasse, Postrio by Wolfgang Puck, Otto by Mario Batali, Bardot Brasserie by Michael Mina, and é by José Andrés.  As an experienced wine supplier, she worked in wine wholesale before starting her own e-commerce company in the fall of 2020, KellySOMM. Together with her husband, Kinson Lau, who is also an F&B veteran and an excellent home cook, they hope to pass down their passion for experiencing and appreciating all cultures to their young son Lucas.
