Les Dames d'Escoffier

Denise Bina

Raised in an Air Force family in the United States and Japan, Denise developed an early love of travel, wine and food. Luckily she was able to take these personal passions and turn them into her profession. For many years she worked throughout the world in sales and marketing with some of the world’s largest food, wine and luxury hotel companies. She has served on many industry boards and spoken at conferences throughout the U.S.

The Global Table was her first company where she worked with organizations worldwide to grow their businesses through sales management, sponsorships, marketing, public relations and event planning. Clients included La Varenne Culinary School and Chateau du Fey, Talon Lodge, Rancho la Puerta, New Zealand Winegrowers, Sedona Film Festival, and Cape of Good Hope Wine Company in conjunction with The Cheetah Conservation Fund.

Three years ago she founded Global Table Travel where she works with clients planning their travels to their dream destinations, whether it be a wine festival, safari, river cruise or more. Always researching new destinations for clients, in the last year she has been to Australia, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Fiji, Japan and Greece as well as numerous travel conferences.

A proud graduate of the University of Arizona, she serves on the Advisory Board of the Norton School at the university.
