So you want to be a sommelier?

Our speaker for the March SWGGA meeting was Dr. William Kramer, surgeon and sommelier. Dr. Kramer spoke about himself and his career in medicine and then explained the occupation of sommelier, or wine steward, and the various training paths to achieving this position. He explained the Court of Master Sommeliers ( training program, the path he chose. Dr. Kramer is currently the sommelier at 58 Degrees and Holding Co. in Sacramento.

He gave his very interesting views on the similarity between the world of medicine and the world of hospitality. It was a wonderful intimate meeting. Dr. Kramer is a fascinating speaker.
