“A good Somm isn’t there to tell you what they like, but to listen to you and figure out what they have that you will like.”

This is where his passion for wine really began. At 21 Ben passed the Introductory Exam from the Court of Master Sommeliers and at 23 became Lafayette’s youngest Sommelier after passing the Court’s Certified Exam.
