  • , the fact that the sommelier role is traditionally male-dominant IS important. That doesn't imply that they're less capable now. What it does mean is that there are a lot more male sommeliers with 20+ years of experience, who are certainly going to be earning more than those with two years of experience. There are also more men than women who are Advanced and especially Master Sommeliers, and they are once again are the highest earners and more experienced than those with lower levels of certification. Let me reiterate, this doesn't mean women are less capable, it simply means they aren't as well represented among the most experienced sommeliers. Yet.

    It would be pretty easy to get a better picture by simply breaking these data into Male and Female categories for each experience and certification level. I hope this is possible!
