On this month’s Sound Bites segment, produced in partnership with Sauce Magazine, managing editor Heather Hughes Huff gave an overview of the six up-and-comers the publication chose for its annual "Ones to Watch" feature that highlights local culinary talent.
Fallows is the bar manager at Chandler Hill Vineyards. She recently achieved the top score on her certified sommelier exam. Schuchmann is the beverage director at the acclaimed restaurant Farmhaus. She’s also a certified sommelier. Sauce’s profile describes her as a “wine/cocktail/service triple threat.”
Passing the sommelier test was no small feat: Out of 46 sommelier exam applicants, 40 were men and six were women — and out of that, only five women and one man passed.
Listen as Fallows and Schuchmann describe navigating the male-dominated industry and their passion for the culinary scene:
