Austria Wine USA, 2010
Today I had the opportunity to sit in on a class with the
American Sommelier Association (http://www.americansommelier.org/) on German and Austrian wines hosted by sommelier, Aldo Sohm. I’m the type of person that learns through repetition so it was a great opportunity for me to reinforce my Austrian wine knowledge and learn a little more about Germany.
Aldo Sohm has currently earned the title of the “Best Sommelier in the World”
through the Worldwide Sommelier Association and has previously been awarded the titles of “Best Sommelier in America” by the American Sommelier Association, “Best Sommelier in New York” by New York Magazine and “Best Sommelier in Austria.” Sohm has also recently received the James Beard Award for Outstanding Wine Service. When he’s not winning “Best of” awards, Sohm is the top sommelier at NYC’s 4 star restaurant, Le Bernardin.
