“I reject the idea when people say you’re a wine expert. I am not a wine expert. There is no more formative expert in the world on what you like than you.”

Join us, as Erik talks all things somm life, his work with the United Sommelier Foundation, as well as his company SOMLYAY. But we also get to explore his guiltiest food & wine pairings, his go-to 90s jams, and how he’d sell eggnog in the summer. Oh, and he also teaches a masterclass on Beaujolais…while drawing a hat, and while on the clock. Multitasking and multitalented.
