When On-premise Turns Off

A picture of chairs arranged upside down on top of tables. Text is "when on.premise turns off".

As lockdowns are enforced from Naples to New York and restaurants put up “closed until further notice” signs, how is this affecting the sommeliers? How are thousands of men and women spending their time, now they are not pouring wine for customers?

In Episode 3, we talk to James Tidwell of Texsom, co-head of the world’s biggest annual gathering of somms; Ronan Rayburn MS who, after working with Gordon Ramsay, launched 67 Pall Mall and almost instantly made it the HQ of the London wine trade; and Joe Fattorini, on-trade consultant and presenter, The Wine Show.
