Lady Somms Rising

Out of the 49 people who took the Advanced Sommelier exam last week, Bouchon Yountville's 30-year-old sommelier Rachael Lowe earned the highest score among the 11 somms who passed, reminding everyone how many more women are taking the sommelier route lately: "Only 14 out of the 103 Master Sommeliers in North America are female, although that's changing. The number of female applicants who've sat for the Advanced exam has quadrupled in the past five years." [CCT]
