Meet our Sommelier
11:00 AM to 6:00 PM     Sat, Apr 1, 2017 - Sun, Apr 2, 2017
Venue: Muscardini Cellars

Ryan Stetins is an Advanced Sommelier in the Court of Master Sommeliers, a decades-old organization that sets the standard for beverage knowledge and service in hotels and restaurants throughout the world. It offers a rigorous educational program that guides aspiring Masters through four increasingly difficult levels of coursework and testing, culminating in the Master Sommelier Diploma Examination.

Currently, there are less than 1,200 Advanced Sommeliers in the Americas, Australia and New Zealand. Additionally, according to the Court, only 25–30 percent of applicants pass the Advanced Sommelier Examination – the third exam in the four part series – illustrating Ryan’s commitment to furthering his education and intellectual prowess in the world of wine.

Ryan passed his Advanced Sommelier Exam with the Court of Master Sommeliers back in April 2013. After working in the restaurant industry for a few years, he's decided to continue his education by returning to the wine industry and has chosen to join the team at Muscardini Cellars and work alongside Michael Muscardini with his love for Italian Varietals.

Ryan will be more than glad to introduce you to new wines or find your perfect pair. Stop by the tasting room during the Sonoma International Film Festival for a viewing of SOMM and to meet our new Somm, Ryan Stetins.
