About the Sommelier series
Close your eyes and imagine the most fantastic feast ever. Now imagine pairing it with the worst possible wine choice. The most amazing oysters paired with a subpar red wine would be a culinary catastrophe. That's where you need a savior to come in: the sommelier. A sommelier's role is to help you harmonize your meal choices with the perfect wine. The perfect pairing brings out the flavor of the food and allows the wine to shine.
Now let's think of our world, the world of technology, of digital solutions. Imagine developing the most incredible platform but running it with a 28k modem. Pairing is just as important for technologists as it is for gourmets. Only when everything comes together, can we create Thinking Breakthroughs.
We are proud to host this new series inspired by the sommelier profession, creating a new unique experience to inspire and entertain. Come join us at Sommelier by Nagarro.
