I can't think of a better way to kick off the New Year than talking 2019 Wine Trends with Master Sommelier and Master of Wine, Eric Hemer. Eric is one of only four people on the planet to have ever achieved both of these credentials. He's also Senior Vice President and Corporate Director of Wine Education for Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits of America. Talk about someone who has their pulse on what's going on in the world of wine!
But it's been a long road to get to this point in his career, and he'll be the first to tell you that.
Hemer has been with Southern Glazer’s for thirty years and started as a Fine Wine Consultant here in the Palm Beaches. He worked his way up, attaining his credentials along the way beginning with his Certified Wine Educator credential in 1999. After that, he achieved his Master Sommelier certification in 2003, and then his Master of Wine in 2013.
Currently, Hemer is actively involved as a lecturer, examiner and instructor with the Court of Master Sommeliers, the Institute of Masters of Wine, the Wine and Spirits Education Trust and the Society of Wine Educators. On this episode of the Wine Atelier podcast, he shares his predictions for 2019 Wine Trends including the future of rosé wine, the hottest up and coming region for sparkling wine, the type of red wine that's gaining in popularity and much, much more!
