It’s not every day that you meet a young and talented female sommelier who also happens to work at Spago, one of the top restaurants in Los Angeles, or as many would argue, the world. We met Cristie Norman last year during a wine tasting at the Malibu Beach Inn and have been big fans ever since. She’s warm and approachable, and despite being more knowledgeable about wine than most of the population will ever be, she’ll never make you feel embarrassed about what you don’t know. Oh- and she’s funny too. She recently debuted her own YouTube show, Adulting with Alcohol, a mix of comedy and wine education.
