Wine Beyond the Quiz
Do wine quizzes a master sommelier make? No, not really. Memorizing essential information is important, but it’s by far not the essential element to being a sommelier. Having a trained palate is the essential skill that separates the professionals from the rest. To be able to differentiate between a Nebbiolo from Gattinara from Barolo, or to be able to discern the difference from a 84 and 85 Chateaux Margaux by the aroma.
Wine tasting is a skill, and it can be learned: just not in books, and not by wine snobs. The greatest sommeliers in the wine trade don’t wear tuxedos and they don’t put on airs. They are the winemakers themselves. Yes, the wine trade is one of the only trades in the world where the best and brightest can opt to wear overalls rather than suits.
