headshot-anani lawson-sqThe evening features a Wine Forum with Anani Lawson (read bio), one of the world’s leading wine sommeliers — for years he worked at Thomas Keller’s French Laundry, helping guests find that perfect wine. Anani travels the world seeking exceptional wines for his clients. Meet him and hear him speak about the wonders of wine discovery and how each bottle of wine tells a story, helping connect us to one another.

Today Anani Lawson can be counted as one of the handful sommeliers to have worked for two Michelin rated three star restaurants on both coasts, The French Laundry in Napa Valley and Per Se in New York City!
