Jobs: Sommelier, Globus, Reykjavik
I love this about my profession: some have a licence to kill, somm´s a licence to taste and drink.
This inspired me to become a sommelier: I didn´t wan´t to become a food runner.
This is how a winemaker can get on my wine list: if he/she can provide me with the wine served for the „Last Supper“.
I would like to have said this once: I found it very difficult to be quiet, everything has been said, whether people have liked it or not.
I foresee these trends in the sommelier profession within the next few years: Hopefully more recognition for sommelier profession, especially in Iceland.
