The Grove was established in 2019, but the journey to its inception spans over 20 years and two continents.
Husband & wife sommelier team/owner-operators are on mission to carefully curate cuisine & culture by providing guests with world-class hospitality experiences. Come, see for yourself what all the talk is about.
Jen and Luis Reyneri met over 20 years ago in Orlando, Florida, where Luis managed The House of Blues at Downtown Disney, now Disney Springs.
Since then, the hospitality industry has taken the Reyneri family, including their two sons, all over the world.
After working in restaurant operations (Luis) and sales and marketing (Jen), Luis pursued his wine education, becoming both an Advanced Level Sommelier and a Certified Wine Educator.
Luis’ fine dining experience as a sommelier and wine director includes successes at the Bellagio and Aladdin Hotels in Las Vegas as well as acclaimed experience in wine from the Kendall Jackson luxury brands among many others. Luis donates his time volunteering at the finest charity wine events around the nation.
After more than a decade helping Luis study for his wine credentials with flash cards, travels and tastings, Jen decided to achieve her own and received her Level One Sommelier Certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2019. Jen has shared about their family’s travels as a social media mentor and influencer at Word Traveling and has helped coach women in marketing and business at Shine Digital Marketing.
As a family, with their first baby in tow, the Reyneris lived abroad in Europe, traveling everywhere grapes grow, including Italy, France, Spain, and Germany, while Luis worked the wine harvests and expanded his knowledge with some of the finest winemakers in the world.
As South Florida and Hobe Sound locals, Jen and Luis are blessed to bring their international experience to their hometown with the creation of The Grove.
The Reyneris invite you to be their family’s guest on a culinary escape to the coasts and countryside of Italy as they share their heart for hospitality and love of international food and wine at The Grove Pizza Cucina & Wine Bar in Hobe Sound!
