Great trip...wish I could do it again!
What is the definition of fine dining restaurant? Don't we all sell Napa cabernet or else in our restaurants?
From the trip organizers: "Any place that employs a Somm would probably fit the bill"
Just a reminder that applications close on June 23 - that's Sunday! Don't miss your chance to apply.
These trips are amazing! Strongly suggest applying.
