Read My Work About Rhône & Somm Camp in the Latest Somm Journal!

In between all my comings and goings there is a wee space to satiate my journalistic beginnings.  In addition to my occasional Sawyer Somm blog posts, take a minute to peruse some industry magazines either in print or online.  The 2020 February/March issue of  The SOMM Journal is a great place to start with my two published pieces!


My column Inside Sonoma is on  page 18.
