Master Sommelier is a very elite title, with the Court of Master Sommeliers having named only 133 professionals to their ranks in the U.S. (the whole world has 201 total). So it's a big deal that the Bay Area has a new one: Emily Pickral-Papach of Napa's Chappellet Winery, who was one of only four people to pass this year's exam (taken by 63 advanced somms). A whopping seven Bay Area professionals were named to the Court last year; we also have by far the most in the country. [EaterWire]
