2017 Best Sommelier

Lauren Daddona, Les Sablons

After watching Lauren Daddona create expert pairings for Frank McClelland’s intricate haute cuisine at L’Espalier, we wondered how the Wayland native would ply her needle-threading genius against the simpler French fare at Les Sablons. Like a boss, it turns out. Her tight opening wine list is a high/low connoisseur’s dream, offering fun and value at every price point—whether you’re down for a quirky $44 Morgon or a $525 Bordeaux from the legendary 1982 vintage.
