Get to know Sarah Limacher, one of our SOMMELIER ROADIE’S at this year’s SYDNEY show. All part of the VIP Ticket!
A kiwi yes, but we’re going to claim her as our own, Sarah is one of the shining sommelier lights in Sydney. With a career seeing her at some of the cities best venues, Sarah was until recently in charge of the wine program at the Keystone group.
Never one to stay still, she’s just set up her own wine consultancy business called Revelry. Appropriate name we think as you’d be hard pressed to find a more engaging wine personality out there. Her enthusiasm for the vinous form is contagious and you can’t help but be inspired.
We’re stoked to have her on board for the Pinot Palooza madness in Sydney.
What do you do with yourself?
Owner and Director of Revelry Wine consulting in Sydney, Sommelier at The Four in Hand in Paddington
What are you working on at the moment?
Getting some new (better) jokes in my repertoire, making perfect pork crackling, trying to drink less Gin and writing some pretty fun wine lists here in Sydney town. I’ve started my own consultancy business Revelry Wine consuting and I’ve got some cool little projects on the go and I’m on the floor at The Floor in Hand spreading the vinous love. Im also on the board for Sommeliers Australia so we are working towards some great tastings, events and programmes for 2016
What is your favourite song of 2015 so far?
Can you remember your ‘first time’ with Pinot? What year was it? Where was it? Tell us!
I’m pretty sure I was an angry teenager and I pinched a bottle of Burgundy out of my parents cellar to take to a party ( it was dusty and I was sure they had forgotten about it until they were looking for it on their wedding anniversary a few years a later ) … its been a beautiful relationship ever since. Sorry mum and dad
What song best sums up that first time experience?
Finish this sentence: Wine and music …
a match made in heaven like Karl & Susan Kennedy, Burgers and Pickles, Gin and Tonic and Ross & Rachel
What is it about Pinot Noir that gets you pumped?
its sexiness is incomparable
