Beverage Director

Dale Johnson joins the Table 128 family with a range of experience in the food and wine community. His passion for cooking and dining began at his great-grandmother's table where she prepared meals from the farm garden. Dale began working in restaurants as a busser and dishwasher at a diner down the street from his home. There he began asking questions and learned to cook. The next few years presented opportunities to grow and learn, rising at some to sous chef. His interest in wine began while working as a pastry cook and baker in Ames, IA. Dale then broke into the wine world working in retail and bartending positions, attaining his Certified Sommelier and other beverage credentials along the way. Currently, he seeks to take and pass the Advanced Sommelier exam. Dale's passions outside of food and wine include cycling, playing curling, watching the Minnesota Twins & Minnesota Wild, and learning languages
