We're thrilled to reveal the 2014 Sommeliers of the Year. To celebrate, all week we're spotlighting their favorite bottles and places to drink, along with a complete wine pairing guide, the best snacks and tips on wine travel. Also up for F&W Wine Week: follow us on Instagram to see the cutest winery pets ever.
June Rodil, Qui, Austin
Why She Won: Rodil has created an amazing list of affordable, esoteric bottles (plus a page of pricey "baller" Bordeaux) and trained everyone on her staff to be a sommelier—from the servers to the cooks who deliver dishes directly to tables.
Eric Railsback, Les Marchands, Santa Barbara, CA
Why He Won: He believes that the wines of Santa Barbara deserve to be served alongside those from the best producers in the world. He's filled his list with old vintages and new producers from the region, including terrific wine he makes there himself.
