The Everyday Sommelier on the Corner
What do sommeliers and wine retailers have in common? A sommelier's primary job is to help restaurant customers select the best wines to accompany the menu items they intend to order.

Here in our shop, we routinely have customers who are planning a dinner and want to select wines that are compatible with their menu. Other customers simply want to find wines that they like, and after asking a few questions, we can point them in the right direction.
