The idea for Out Of The Blue came to Sarah one afternoon while she was reading on the porch of her Blue Ridge home. "Having come from a family history of hometown hardware stores and personally spending 28 years in the photo industry, I was dedicated to becoming the "modern day" gourmet shop owner." With a passion for the finest wines, gourmet foods, exquisite table linens and all aspects of entertaining, it is Sarah's goal for each customer experience to be intimate and exciting. Sarah invites you to come in, make yourself at home and know that we understand the art of gourmet living in the North Georgia Mountains.

Partners in life for nineteen years, Linda continues to do what she does best...SUPPORT. Handling all the correspondence with our vendors, making sure all shipments are ecologically packaged, recycling everything from coffee grounds to cardboard, Linda keeps things ship shape. If she isn't on horse back in the woods, she is probably handling a tasting of her favorite products (Dulcet) or in the back room rearranging Sarah's office!
After flying with Delta for twenty years, Sheri landed in Blue Ridge and Out Of The Blue took full advantage of that! Beautiful, funloving and smart, Sheri brings a hearty laugh and tremendous enthusiasm to everything she does....did we mention great taste? How lucky can we get? With a wonderful home on Lake Blue Ridge, her two dachshunds and husband Chris, Sheri is here to stay.
Chef Hans Rueffert:
While some people have a soundtrack to their lives, Hans Rueffert has a menu. The self-proclaimed "Restaurant Boy" was raised upstairs above the Woodbridge Inn Restaurant in downtown Jasper, GA and has spent his entire life with food. Hans spent over a dozen years as the Inn's Chef and now hosts his own cooking show in Georgia. In 2005, Hans was selected out of 10,000 applicants to be one of 8 finalist (the only one from the South) to compete on the show - The Next Food Network Star, and finished third in that competition.

After a great run as one of the best Art teachers in South Florida (and maybe the world) BT Bean and his wife, Cindy made it to Blue Ridge. Perfect background for being at Out of the Blue...There is apparently nothing Mr. Bean cannot do-including play piano, ride a unicycle and even roller skate! Which he has done on the job!
Speaking of jobs, BT is really a top notch realtor with Coldwell Banler High Country Realty. We are just lucky enough to take full advantage of his talents in the "off" time. Stop in and visit with BT...you may end up moving to Blue Ridge too!
