Failing the hardest test in the world... twice. Amanda Danielson is an advanced wine sommelier, a title that's absurdly difficult to get. She's also a restaurateur, a wife, a mother, a writer, a poet, and as you will soon find out... a total badass.
In this episode Amanda talks about being invited to take the master sommelier exam - arguably the most difficult test in the world - and failing. Twice. Hear about the intensity of the exam, and about how Amanda uses her wine powers for good, working to make wine more inclusive for everyone.
Plus, at the very end, I learn the secret to picking a good bottle of wine!
