Congratulations to Elli Benchimol and David Kurka for Passing the Master Sommelier Advanced Exam


Recommended Posts

Elli Benchimol (now a (the?) Sommelier at Range), and David Kurka (Bartender at CityZen) are 2 of only 26 people nationwide to pass the Advanced Sommelier Exam administered by the Court of Master Sommeliers in Palm Beach, FL.

Elli and David join Kathy Morgan and Keith Goldston (also at Range (!?), though I suspect the trio cannot possibly be there forever) and Frank Kysela (of Kysela Pere et Fils (wine importers) in Winchester, VA) as the only area Master Sommeliers. Correction: Elli and David are *not* yet Master Sommeliers - they're still one exam away from achieving that (considerable) feat. Kathy and Keith, however, are.

Congratulations to both of these fine people - I'm looking forward to tracking your careers as the years go by!
