ALCOHOL ABUSE IS DANGEROUS FOR YOUR HEALTH, PLEASE ENJOY AND CONSUME IN MODERATION

Talking about myself is all well and good, but what’s important is you. Yes, you. What would you like to drink? Or more precisely, what would you enjoy? That is the question that lies at the base of the sommelier profession. Rather than favouring a particular appellation, style or fashion, it’s your wishes and your desires that count. It requires a virtue all too often forgotten (and not just in restaurants!): humility. Humility towards the person you serve, and with just a little psychology and attention, you will fulfil their desires. And possibly even surprise them as well.

Besides, how can you not be humble when faced with the superstar that is wine? Everything about it inspires respect. The hard work and perseverance of a good winemaker. Sometimes we will have to guess at what we will find in the bottle, and sometimes also at its versatility. The nobility of this ancient message of civilization is hidden away at the bottom of every glass, this eternal lesson of sharing.
