Award-winning sommelier and wine industry changemaker, Tonya Pitts believes that wine brings community.

“Wine is family, even those that are not blood become family, through wine,” said Pitts. “I often say sometimes bread is the stuff of life, but so is wine. It really is. It changes things, and it brings people together.”

Tonya Pitts is the Sommelier & Wine Director of One Market restaurant in San Francisco with over 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry. She was named Sommelier of the Year for Wine Enthusiast’s 2022 Wine Star Awards.

“There’s tests, there are certifications, you can never taste enough. You’re constantly tasting. And for me, even where I am now, it’s inherent,” explained Pitts. “Someone will put something in front of me, a glass of wine, a taste of wine, and I’m immediately thinking about what is this going to pair with? What can I present to someone, or even for myself, so I’m always thinking that way.” Read more @ ABC7 News…
