Alpana Singh, A Master Sommelier
In this video, master sommelier, Alpana Singh, shares what her motivation was for becoming a sommelier, after working in the restaurant industry for a good amount of time. She realized that she had an interest in science, food, and history, and both her parents were in the restaurant business, and that is how she became a sommelier.
One of just 269 master sommeliers worldwide, and one of just 28 women to be given the distinction, Alpana Singh became the youngest woman ever to pass the final level of the master sommelier exam at age 26. Born and raised in Monterey, California, Alpana Singh’s strong work ethic and ease with people of all ages stemmed from a youth spent working in her family’s ethnic grocery store. Later, while waiting tables in college, Singh fell in love with wine and discovered that it united her varied interests in traveling, history and food.
