CONGRATS: James Tidwell Passed Master Sommelier Exam

Drew Hendricks and James TidwellYou’ve heard me talk about Four Seasons Sommelier James Tidwell. He’s one half of the duo who founded the Texas Sommelier Conference and has been a champion of wine education in Texas for years. I just received a text from James (he’s still in Healdsburg, Calif.) and am happy to report that he passed the exam, making him the fourth Master Sommelier in Texas, second in Dallas. For those of you who don’t know what a major feat it is to pass the test, read this article to get a clue. Congratulations, James. We all know how hard you’ve worked for this. Well done.
