Michael Sager will be speaking at the session Somms like it hot

Michael Sager 

Spending two years living in San Francisco turned Sager’s nose to wine, and gave him a passion to share his knowledge with those yet to discover an appreciation for it.

Here in California was where Sager had the remarkable opportunity to work under award-winning sommelier Raj Parr, who he considers a close friend and mentor, and learned the variances between wines from different vineyards, producers and vintages.

"I dropped my initial point of view that wine is just a lot of fancy talk with no essence justifying the spend asked.”
