Wine Director & Sommelier
With over 30 years of hospitality experience in the Metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, Stephen Elhafdi brings an impressive blend of expertise and enthusiasm to the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant in Middleburg, Virginia.
A native of Morocco, Mr. Elhafdi came to the United States as an apprentice to work with his uncle Marc Fusilier, the internationally acclaimed Maître Cuisinier de France and Commanderie des Cordons Bleus de France. They worked together for 14 years at the upscale Chez Marc, Restaurant Français, in Virginia. He eventually transitioned from the kitchen to the front of the house, and seriously began to pursue his studies in the fine art of food and wine pairings.
For the next decade, he worked with the legendary restaurateur and Chef Bob Kinkead in Washington, D.C. At the height of Chef Kinkead’s success in multiple locations, Mr. Elhafdi helped to build a global wine list of over 375 wines. He managed an inventory in excess of 6,000 bottles and over a million dollars in annual wine sales.
In 2013, Mr. Elhafdi accepted the position of Sommelier at the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant, working hand-in-hand with Restaurant Manager Mimi Schneider and the Goodstone culinary team. Set on a 265 acre estate in Virginia’s wine country, Goodstone Inn & Restaurant is a luxurious country Inn and award-winning French/American restaurant situated on an actual working farm. Within the restaurant, the culinary team and Mr. Elhafdi offer an extensive farm-to-table dining experience, with wine pairings perfectly matched to a variety of menus, including a daily à la carte, prix-fixe, degustation and ‘Chef’s Surprise’ Menu for both lunch and dinner, seven days a week.
Mr. Elhafdi also created Goodstone’s Retail Wine Club program, and regularly hosts a series of popular food and wine events at the Restaurant, featuring well-known international winemakers. He also offers complimentary consulting services to our guests as they build their personal wine cellars, or make individual purchases targeted towards special events.
At the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant, Mr. Elhafdi maintains a wine list of over 500 selections, many of which have been specifically chosen for the current season and dinner menu. Goodstone also has a temperature-controlled, 3,500-bottle wine cellar, an extremely popular private dining space for special events or exclusive wine dinners. In addition, Goodstone has three EuroCaves, housing up to an additional 664 bottles.
While serving as Sommelier, the Goodstone Inn & Restaurant has won numerous awards, including:
Wine Spectator 2017 and 2016 Best of Award of Excellence
Wine Spectator 2015 Award of Excellence
