The man behind the Sadler Wine Market gourmet concept. With a passion for wine & food in everything he does. From vacations, family gatherings, to date nights with his wife, Maggie, they all revolve around two things: wine & food. He even proposed at the Joseph Decuis farm, just to make sure the marriage started off with the best meal offered in the state and hand selected wine. Maggie and Jon start the week off like many of you do, discussing what’s on the menu for the week, including what will be on their wine list. Jon loves finding new wine and food pairings and loves sharing his wine and food thoughts with anyone who will listen. Ask his young nieces what goes well with Havarti? They know a buttery Chardonnay will pair perfectly (not because they are drinking it…). His favorite activity is relaxing on the patio with his wife, listening to music, and enjoying a new or old favorite bottle of wine!
Linda is our in-house chardonnay expert. She has an incredibly high success rate for introducing otherwise tentative chardonnay drinkers to their new favorite wine. If you ever have the pleasure of being invited to Linda’s for happy hour, make sure to come hungry. She is known to have a spread of the best appetizers you will ever taste accompanied by great wine and cheese.
Ian is the original ‘foodie’. He saw the potential in the niche gourmet food market and made the decision with Jon and Linda to jump in and make gourmet food shopping a personal experience in Fishers. Because of his world travels, Ian understands the wide-spectrum of what gourmet can mean: from street food in China (Cicadas anyone?) to family-owned restaurants and vineyards across Europe. Ian truly has an immense gourmet palate and is excited to help you define yours.
Acting head master of newly acquired Cork and Cracker, Nic began his Indianapolis wine career over a decade ago. First and foremost he wants to get to know you. Your individual palate is highly relative, situational, and deeply personal. Our relationship to wine, food, food & wine is as layered and complex as we are. Experience and wine education is important. However sincere and thoughtful communication leads to a superior experience, accurate suggestions, consistent recommendations, and builds a strong relationship with individual customers and the community. Nic enjoys introducing you to new things, asking you what you plan on having for supper, and finds wine in connection with food and cooking to be a highly therapeutic experience. In the shop you may see him restocking, replying to emails, cleaning, or merchandising new products. Outside of work he will be quite preoccupied with the new house he and his wife Porsha just purchased, but perhaps you’ll see him conducting wine tastings every Thursday at Chalet.
Kayla’s passion is wine education. To her, the best way to enjoy a wine is to understand the regions, varieties, and processes involved in its production. Likewise, the only way to truly understand a wine is to taste it. Such an appreciation for wine allows Kayla to make recommendations that take into account not only personal preference and food pairings but the terroir of the occasion. Motivated by her passion, she relishes the opportunity to learn about and recommend novel wines. This doesn’t mean Kayla is without favorites! She loves red wine that evokes leather and earth, and whites full of minerality. When she’s not recommending a great wine, Kayla is busy crafting and updating our website, posting on our social media, and creating eye catching signs and flyers for our in house needs. Outside the world of wine, Kayla enjoys kayaking, yoga, and watching her young son, Atlas, explore the world with curious eyes.
Josh is a born-and-raised Indiana boy, hailing from Plainfield where he and his family spent time nourishing their love of fine dining and general cosmopolitan activity. While just beginning the academic portion of his wine education, Josh has spent his entire adult life working in restaurants across central Indiana, St. Elmo Steak House, Patachou Corp., Cunningham Group, gleaning and growing his skills, and is now so proud and excited to be a part of building up this great wine enthusiast community in Broad Ripple, his long-time homebase. You may also have seen him manning the desk at Luna Music, another Broad Ripple staple, and is always open to comparing fine wine to fine records when you visit the shop! If he had to pick a wine-growing region of the world, he’d without a doubt pick Italy, for its savory Sangiovese in Tuscany and its elegant aromatic Nebbiolo in Piemonte.

After Debbie and her husband got married, they began trying different wines…mostly by picking labels that looked interesting. About 10 years ago, they started taking wine inspired trips to California and Oregon. Her favorite places were the small wineries where she could taste and talk to the winemaker. They ventured to Europe as well, and have taken wine cruises on the Rhine River, Danube River, and Rhone River. When Tasteful Times opened 11 years ago, she joined the wine club and has been a member ever since. Debbie used to gravitate toward New World wines but after exploring the wine regions of the world, her current favorites are Austria, Germany, and France – ask her again in a few months and she may have a new favorite! In her spare time, she likes to volunteer at the Indiana Historical Society, Newfields, and KIBI. Fitness is also important to Debbie, you’ll often find her prepping for her next mini marathon, hiking, or playing pickle ball and, of course, searching for that next favorite glass of wine.
During her time living in Southern California, Holly had the chance to visit Napa and Sonoma several times and her love of wine grew from there. She has spent the last six years working in the wine industry and has enjoyed expanding her wine expertise beyond the New World wines she was familiar with. Holly loves helping customers find the perfect varietal to match their wine drinking needs, whatever the occasion. Her favorite wine region is Paso Robles, and she loves a bold Cabernet Sauvignon or Zinfandel. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, gardening and of course drinking a great glass of wine!
