- Aldo Sohm
- As chef sommelier of Le Bernardin, New York City's longest-rated four-star restaurant, Aldo Sohm oversees a wine collection of 15,000 bottles made up of 900 selections from twelve countries, with vintages dating back to 1945. Sohm joined Le Bernardin in 2007, after working as wine director at Wallsé, Blaue Gans and Café Sabarsky in New York. Sohm has received numerous awards, including the World Sommelier Association's highly-coveted "Best Sommelier in the World" title in 2008, "Best Sommelier in America" in 2007, and the James Beard Award for "Outstanding Wine Service" for Le Bernardin in 2009. Throughout his career, he has never altered his signature approach to wine: infectious enthusiasm and abundant knowledge, with no hint of pretension.
