How to transition from server to somm position

How did you go from being a server/bartender to being in the sommelier position and what steps did you take to get to where you are now?

as someone who passed the intro and studying for the certified. What would you recommend for me to do to move into a wine team position?

  • Often its hard to make the jump from server to Somm at the same restaurant. Many times once the owners and staff see you as a server its hard for them to then see you as a Somm. I recommend looking for a very wine focused restaurant in your area, see if they are looking for a JR Somm to help out under a very experienced Somm you could learn from. Passing certifications is great but nothing is better than working the floor night in and night out.
