The Article Where We Embarrass Elton

No, I am not going to post the picture of Elton wearing a sombrero and multi-colored bear glasses (if only because that would likely result in him posting the picture of me in a midriff-bearing women’s top, not that one exists). But, I would be remiss if I did not point out the recent profile of our own Elton Nichols in the October issue of the Hawaii Beverage Guide.

It discusses his career path, subsequent rise through the industry and, most importantly, his interesting original notions about what it took to become a sommelier:

I never thought I would be a sommelier. I thought you had to be raised by wolves that drank wine to become a sommelier.

Let that be a lesson to all you aspiring wine professionals out there: You don’t have to be raised by wolves that drank wine to become a sommelier, you just have to act like it.

Just kidding, Elton. Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition for all your hard work.

To read the full article, pick up the October issue of Hawaii Beverage Guide or check out the profile online before they take it down for the November issue.
