Meet Carlton McCoy, Wine Director at the Little Nell in Aspen, Colorado and one of only two African American Master Sommeliers. He’s Joe Campanale’s guest this week on In the Drink, and the two wine professionals chat about everything from regional clientele to the masters sommelier test. This program was sponsored by Cain Vineyard & Winery.

“The title mater sommelier itself is a very aggressive sounding thing, it’s not a very approachable title.” [15:00]
