Diary of a Sommelier Student -First Level End of Course Get Together at Roof and Sky

8 March, 2010-Hotel Ramada Naples. Back then, we were a group of about 60 strangers with one objective in mind…to increase our comprehension of wine. So for nearly 3 months, every Monday night from 8 pm ish to around 1030, the Hotel Ramada became a second home. Friendships grew alongside our knowledge.

June 15th, we took our exam…July 1st we celebrated our accomplishment at Roof and Sky in Bacoli. Michele Grande-owner and fellow sommelier student-prepared an excellent menu. Formula BYOB. Spumante, Greco di Tufo, Fiano di Avellino, Falanghina, and Chardonnay were some of the wines we shared over great food, magnificent conversation, and an excellent view from the middle of Lake Miseno. Our ‘leader’ Tommaso Luongo, pulled out his cigars and shared with all who wanted to end the night with a smoke, a smile, and a glass of grappa or vermouth.

A great way to say ‘see you at the next class'…
