Master Sommelier and GYH client, Michael Engelmann, explains the basics of wine tasting, what to look for when you pop open a new bottle and how to sound like a pro when describing your favorite glass.

Michael Engelmann was named Best Sommelier in America by the American Sommelier Association in 2009. He is one of only 236 wine experts in the world to be named a Master Sommelier by the Court of Master Sommeliers in 2011, passing the master sommelier examination on his first attempt, a distinction that only 14 people have achieved in the 40-year history of the Court of Master Sommeliers.
