Meet the Staff

Matt Catchpole

General Manager Matt Catchpole grew up in Aiken, South Carolina. In his youth he spent summers in Alabama, where he first gained an appreciation for great food with fresh ingredients, and later a greater appreciation for the power of a great glass of wine paired with that food.

Matt attended Auburn University, during which time he worked in his first kitchens. After working with talented chefs in that area, he really began to foster his passion for food and beverage, working and consulting with a number of operations throughout the Southeast.

Having studied under some of the top sommeliers, cicerones, and spirits experts in the country, Matt himself holds certifications at various levels in wine, beer and spirits and has worked in various capacities throughout the industry to create a truly outstanding experience for the guests of his operations.

There really isn’t much better than a perfectly executed meal paired with the perfect libation, and it is Matt’s goal to make sure Terra continues to uphold its long standing reputation for providing outstanding service and quality food paired with an uncommonly great selection of wine, beer and spirits.
