An Afternoon with a Real "Somm" at The Wine Room, Kinston, NC
Yes, there's a real, Court of Sommeliers' certified sommelier in ENC. Waiting for that elusive reservation slot at Chef Vivian Howard’s acclaimed Chef & The Farmer restaurant to open up? Stop by for a sip or two next door at The Wine Shop, Chef Vivian Howard’s wine and beer tasting room adjacent to the restaurant. Select wines and craft beer are artfully presented and explained by any one of their five in-house sommeliers such as Ross, a Level I sommelier, pictured here. Foodies and fans of the PBS television documentary series, “A Chef’s Life,” will find original and rare selections in this rustic tasting room in revitalizing downtown Kinston, NC.
Tastings occur every Saturday from 2-5 pm, $8.00 per person and wine specials are available.
Tip: Inquire about the arduous process and levels to become a "Somm". Chef & The Farmer booked for the night? Bounce over to Boiler Room Oyster Bar for some innovative burgers, oysters, and fries (part of the same restaurant group by Chef Vivian Howard with equal quality to boot!).
