Current Sharon Kapnick Articles

New York City award-winning author and certified sommelier Sharon Kapnick has written about wine and food for many magazines, including Time, Food & Wine, Hemispheres, Flavor & Fortune and, and many newspapers, thanks to The New York Times Syndicate. She won an APEX Award for Excellence for the story “What’s for Breakfast,” published by Hemispheres. And she contributed to The Oxford Encylopedia of Food and Drink in America, published by Oxford University Press.

Although she has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Chicago and a master’s from Boston University, the "degree” she cherishes most is the Sommelier Certificate she earned, atop the World Trade Center, from the Sommelier Society of America.
