2007 BEST Sommelier
Loomis is the anti-sommelier (a fact that may or may not be rooted in his past as a punk rocker). He’s not patronizing, despite knowing all the details on 600 labels and more than 6,000 bottles; his favorite wines are cheap French vintages. In fact, as far as we can tell, the only thing about Loomis that’s remotely sommelierlike is his passion for the romance and culture of wine, and his ability to pick the perfect bottle for your meal.
