Yannick Benjamin is an advanced sommelier who works at the University Club. He is also, more importantly, a man who leads by example, co-founding Wheeling Forward, a non-profit that focuses on giving back to the community.
He also started Wine on Wheels, a growing community of wine afficionados and sommeliers putting on events to benefit charity. They bring people together from across the hospitality industry to pour wines, socialize, and raise funds to empower people with disabilities to reach their potential.
Yannick and I talk about some of his upcoming events, our takes on natural wines, the master somm re-sits, and some great recent wine tastings that Yannick has been involved with.
Get ready for an engaging conversation. Pull up a chair, grab a glass and enjoy!
