Best New Sommeliers
Every year, Wine & Spirits surveys sommeliers, restaurant wine buyers, and wine retailers to help identify some of North America's rising stars in wine. In our October issue, we'll reveal our Best New Sommeliers for 2019.
Wine & Spirits asked sommeliers from around the country to nominate rising stars, restaurant wine buyers with fewer than four years under their belts who are making an impact in their cities. Our winners received broad support from their peers, and are serving exceptional wines at their restaurants. Here are our profiles of each shining star, including their arrival in the wine world, favorite bottles from their lists, and projects outside of their restaurants.
