About the event

Join us for an enlightening discussion with Yannick Benjamin, celebrated Sommelier of the Year by the Michelin Guide. Yannick, co-founder of Contento Restaurant and Beaupierre Wines & Spirits in vibrant New York City, brings a unique perspective rooted in his French heritage and a passion for wine cultivated from his family's legacy.

Despite facing a life-altering car accident in 2003, Yannick's resilience and determination propelled him to pursue his dreams, overcoming obstacles to become a distinguished sommelier. His early professional journey includes esteemed establishments like Le Cirque, Jean-Georges, Felidia, and Atelier at the Ritz Carlton.

With a commitment to accessibility and inclusivity, Yannick and his partners established Contento with the ethos "accessible for all," setting a standard for quality hospitality with a broad, inclusive approach. Yannick's dedication extends beyond his entrepreneurial ventures; he is also a co-founder of Wine on Wheels, harnessing his passion for wine to support charitable endeavors.

Yannick's contributions to the wine world have garnered widespread recognition, earning him a place among Wine Enthusiast's Top 40 under 40. His expertise has been showcased on major television networks, including ABC, NBC, and CBS, and in the documentary series "Uncorked" on Esquire TV.

In our discussion, Yannick will share valuable insights into the latest wine trends, exploring the effects of climate change, regional shifts, and emerging blends. As summer approaches, we'll also highlight the best selections for refreshing summer wines, guided by Yannick's unparalleled expertise and passion for wine.
