About me

Gender Male
Occupation Sommelier
Location New York, NY, United States
Introduction I love wine. My career has been dictated by my passion for the stuff. I have gone from retail sales in NYC to working the vineyards in Burgundy, from managing Burgundian estates to orchestrating national wine strategies throughout the US restaurant industry. And now I hold the exciting position of sommelier in a restaurant with a world-renowned chef. As a sommelier with a world-class wine list I have the extraordinary opportunity of tasting nearly 40 fine-wines from all over the world in a single shift. From the rarest and exalted Bordeaux and Burgundy estates to the humble country wines that over-perform for their class. There is nothing I love more than to share my impressions and opinions of these wines with others -- the raison d’etre of this blog. – MM
