Our first episode features Marc Almert, ASI Best Sommelier of the World 2019

Marc Almert’s journey into the world of wine was fueled by an insatiable curiosity and a simple question: Why do some wines taste better than others? Initially aspiring to be a hotel director, Marc pivoted his career path to become a sommelier, captivated by the ever-changing complexities of wine. His pursuit of knowledge didn’t stop at books; it involved immersive experiences, from engaging conversations with winegrowers to extensive travel and rigorous training. He eventually went on to wine the coveted title of ASI Best Sommelier of the World Competition in 2019 at just 27 years old. 

Marc is surrounded by ‘fine wine’ in his daily life, but really is ‘fine wine’? We asked Marc to give his sights into the evolving perception of fine wine.
