Food & Wine has released its list of the top sommeliers of 2013 for the April issue of the magazine. Winners hail from all around the country and include husband-and-wife Napa sommeliers Kelli White & Scott Brenner (Press), New York City's Joe Campanale (L'Apicio, L'Artusi, etc), and Houston's Justin Vann (Oxheart). Food & Wine Senior Wine Editor Megan Krigbaum explains that these folks were chosen for "setting trends, whether they're rejecting written wine lists, rallying around small California producers, pairing food with beer or otherwise redefining what it means to be a sommelier." Here's the full list:
