The Sommelier

Donough O'Malley illustrates for the latest issue of Wine Republic.

Sometimes referred to as a 'Wine Steward' in English, a Sommelier is a knowledgeable and trained professional guiding restaurant goers as to the best selection of drinks to go with their meal. Donough has brought a burst of colour and character to his illustrations for the article which focuses on the talents of the expert - often commonly assumed to be solely dealing in the area of wine. Their profession is also highly skilled in food pairing, involving extensive knowledge in all beverages, including beer and spirits.
