Kevin Ecock's WinePod

I met with Julie Dupouy at the Santa Rita Wine Room at Monty's of Kathmandu in Dublin. We had a chat on what it takes to be a world class sommelier. Julie was the first woman to make to the final round of the world sommelier finals - that makes her the world's leading female sommelier!

Along with the chat we managed to taste a Cypriot wine (Commandaria by Keo), a Sake (Shiraume Ginjo Umeshu by Akashi), the Zantho Beerenauslese from Austria and the Oloroso VORS by Barbadillo.

Great chat. Fabulous tasting. Great morning.

(While recording both Julie and I expressed our gratitude to the great Sommelier and Master of Wine Gerard Basset. Since our recording Gerard succumbed to an illness and sadly passed away. RIP to a really fabulous individual.)
