Master Sommelier Richard Dean of San Francisco’s Taj Campton Place

Master Sommelier Richard Dean of Taj Campton Place

We sat down to talk with Master Sommelier Richard Dean of San Francisco’s Taj Campton PlaceThere are less than 240 Master Sommeliers in the world.  He was the youngest in the world  and the second American to become a Master Sommelier in the world. He became a Master Sommelier about 40 years ago when California was not considered as a wine growing region.

When you meet  Dean he instantly makes  you feel at ease. Perhaps that is the reason I felt comfortable enough to ask him really basic questions about wine, what glass to use with what wine, the art of pairing food with wine and his recommendations for visiting the vineyards in the San Francisco Bay area. And, we also wanted to find out if he has a “nose” for wines or did he have to work really hard at his job? Tune in to find out what he has to say.
