Recently I got a chance to sit down with Aldo Sohm - the Head Sommelier of the famed Le Bernardin restaurant in Manhattan - and talk with him about wine, his long career thus far, how he approaches the service at Le Bernardin, and why he always puts on some Bling before heading out to the dining room. You can catch that interview and more to come on a just launched podcast site dedicated to long form discussions with the good folks of the wine business. You can also check it out on iTunes.
Aldo is genuinely inpiring, both as a person and a sommelier, and I was deeply honored that he took the time to share with me so much of his thinking. Thank you, Aldo.
Don't miss the interview. Aldo is one of the most dedicated people working as a sommelier today, and if you care about wine this is a voice that you absolutely should hear.
And if you want to keep up with Aldo beyond the interview be sure to check in with his own blog.
