Levi Dalton Sits Down with Daniel Johnnes New York City is a particularly sommelier-rich city, and if you were to trace the lineage of the modern sommelier, you would find one common ancestor: Daniel Johnnes. While still a young man with some two decades and change in the business, Daniel has had a profound impact on what we drink, how we drink it and who we take advice from. He is quite simply the proto-modern sommelier, and Levi Dalton recently caught up with him in a fast-paced and enlightening interview!

Since 2005, Daniel Johnnes has been the wine director for Daniel Boulud’s WINEX group. With a full range of restaurants under his watchful eye, Johnnes is in the enviable position of buying wine for all restaurant comers, from those who want something to pair with a DBGB Burger at the bar to those seeking the ultimate in wine pairing and refinement.

    Levi Dalton's body language is extremely annoying.He keeps covering his mouth with his hand, and that slouching style seems to indicate condescension...very unprofessional.
