Two friends and sommeliers – restaurateur Alpana Singh and wine director Belinda Chang – explain how their college degrees in history and biochemistry inform their wine selection, and reveal the “aha!” moments that steered them into the culinary arena. They also tell us how to make the most of the BYOB experience (hint: bring your own glass).
