Cocktails are Better Together: Spotlight on Harvest Headliner Christine Tarpey

A Florida native, Tarpey decided to take her love for beverages on the road and fine-tune her skills in the big city lights such as Las Vegas and Dallas. During her travels, she worked under many Master Sommeliers, celebrity chefs, and other beverage professionals, propelling her into a life full of beverage exploration. She soon realized that her passion for learning about trends in the bar world would become an interest to her in many facets and would quickly open the gate to a world full of innovation and collaboration.


By mixing together her passion for beverage and decor, along with her expertise in events and deep seeded relationships with local businesses, she created Better Together Beverage - the perfect creation for celebrations and drink enthusiasts alike! This one-stop-shop beverage company should be on your radar as your “go-to” when it comes to curating events bars, cocktail seminars, in-house bars, beverage consulting, and so on. Tarpey will always see Better Together Beverage as “a chance to challenge the standard and raise the expectations of the local beverage scene.” But she will ask one thing of you, always save her a glass of bubbles and flash her your best smile!
