Join Proprietor, Master Sommelier & Author Alpana Singh for an evening of wine conversations! Alpana will share with the audience The Road to Becoming a Master Sommelier, turning your passion into a career. How the daughter of Fijian-Indian immigrants became the youngest female master sommelier in the world and the owner of three successful Chicago restaurants. A story of determination, grit, never giving up on your dream and why you should always look at your wine glass as half full.
At 19, she pursued a path in the business with a job as a wine sales clerk at Nielsen Bros. Market in Carmel, California. By 23, she had landed the sommelier position at the world-renowned Everest Restaurant in Chicago. Just three years later, Singh went on to become the youngest female to pass the final level of the Master Sommelier exam. This evening will leave you motivated and excited about the world of wine tasting!
