Alpana Singh

Master Sommelier

When she was but 26, Master Sommelier Alpana Singh became the youngest woman to join the ranks of the Court of Master Sommeliers, the elite body that administers the days-long exam that aspiring sommeliers must pass to earn the coveted credential of Master Sommelier. (The briefest of definitions: Sommeliers are responsible for wine and beverage selection at an establishment.) Singh is the owner of The Boardinghouse, a Chicago fine-dining restaurant.

“Talented sommeliers must be passionate about history, sociology, travel, culture art, food, and science.”
