KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Andy - great to see you back on #SommChat - can't wait for your Questions for @Luke_Boland

Andy Phillips @AndyOnFarmWine Good morning all! #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Good morning Q. @Luke_Boland How did you get started in the wine biz & who are your mentors? Thanks #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @SandyWasserman Honestly, necessity. I used to cook and then when I quit that, didn't know where else to turn. #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @SandyWasserman Hardly knew about wine, studied relentlessly. @DrinkEatLove has spent the most professional time with me #SommChat

Park Place Wines ‏@ParkPlaceWines @SommChat @KeeperColl I'm having trouble describing wines to customers on the floor, sugestions? @noblewines @Luke_Boland #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @ParkPlaceWines Try to use easy to relate things. Don't describe one abstract with another. Simple, accessible descriptors work. #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @ParkPlaceWines Build a vocabulary that has context. Different textural words, fruits, ways to make wine sound delicious! #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine A little on your background please Luke #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @AndyOnFarmWine cooking at age 15, CIA for culinary, worked in a wine store, worked @Eataly then @DelPosto now @lasirenany #SommChat

Christopher Miller @noblewines #SommChat @KeeperColl #wine buying season about 2 start 4 #hamptons gotta taste like crazy! Monday @Massanois @tedwardwines @ViasWine

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Thanks @noblewines for joining in on #SommChat - always great to see you join in even though we know you are busy

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines gotta keep up somehow with social media in #wine #SommChat @MediaLabRat Christopher Miller added,

Park Place Wines ‏@ParkPlaceWines @KeeperColl @Luke_Boland How do you think #longisland #wine stacks up against other #NY wine reigons? @noblewines #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @ParkPlaceWines Everywhere has potential. Winemakers dictate the future. I think Long Island has made great strides, will continue #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @ParkPlaceWines finger lake riesling vs. long island cab. sauv for ex. isn't really important though. Focus on regional identity. #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines #FingerLakes has figured out their identity, still in progress I think for @LIWineCountry #SommChat #WineWednesday

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland Congrats on UR new gig @lasirenany tell us abt what U will do there? #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Thanks! Currently trying to make things perfect. I want to build an environment to foster service and education #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeepColl Large wine team is still expanding with motivated young professionals. I hope to provide with tools to succeed #SommChat

Rita Jammet @CaravelleChamp @Luke_Boland very happy you’re on #SommChat today! @KeepColl

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @CaravelleChamp @keepcoll Hey thanks!! I think I'll see you @lasirenany this week. Scoped a rez on OT. Can't wait to have you in! #SommChat

Rita Jammet ‏@CaravelleChamp @luke_Boland I’m beyond excited to discover @lasirenany and to meet you in person! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @CaravelleChamp give him a hug from his #Austin fan base! #SommChat

Sandy Wasserman CS ‏@SandyWasserman Q @Luke_Boland Have you ever made wine? If so what & where? If not, any desire too? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @SandyWasserman No sir, I am not a winemaker and don't intend to be! I leave that to the pros. More than happy to drink the result #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @SandyWasserman I love things like Faro from Sicily, aromatic Valtellina Nebbiolo and alpine Teroldego from Trentino #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @SandyWasserman Palari for Faro, and small producer for Teroldego Ciprian

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat Peep: heard you have #wine #Theory test soon - how did and do you prepare for this test? @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl yup! March 7th... Terribly nerve wracking. Maps and books and flashcards and the sort. Gotta study! #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl With new restaurant, haven't had as much time as I would like, but doing the best I can with studies and gonna try! #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @Luke_Boland who are you studying with? #SommChat @ParkPlaceWines @ToppingRose

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @noblewines I don't know their handles... but many somms from EMP, Jean Georges, North End Grill... there's many people in group #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl - Hello from Chicago - we're finally getting some snow during a #SommChat !

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl keep warm by asking questions on #SommChat to @Luke_Boland new #wine director for @lasirenany :)

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep: @Luke_Boland do you hire #Sommeliers for @lasirenany & if so, what do U look 4? Is there a shortage of #Somms in #NYC?

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I sure do! My team is currently 10 people. 4 Somms 4 Asst and 1 wine runner/cellar with me! I look for many things: #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Personality needs to shine. Talk comfortably. Know producers. Be enthusiastic and exited to sell wine! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl End of the day we are just servers who know a specific subject. Humility is a great asset. It drives knowledge hunger #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl there's a shortage of people willing to really commit to hard work and study while graciously serving. So, I guess yes #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Although NYC has the best somm community in my opinion! but, newcomers need to dedicate themselves! #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines an awesome view that isn't out enough about #sommelier duties #SommChat #winechat @ToppingRose @ParkPlaceWines

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @noblewines It's up to you and me to bring the view into focus! Never lose the willingness to be open. Cheers! #SommChat

WineCompass ‏@winecompass @Luke_Boland Are there any wine regions you are focused on #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @winecompass For my list I want to expand on Sicily and Campania. Those places have beautiful, terroir driven wines #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @winecompass Then again, Barolo is always the super model in the room in my book. #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine Exciting times in the wine world do you have a favorite region #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @AndyOnFarmWine There's a lot of cool, off the beaten path stuff. I drink that too! but I have my classic guilty indulgences #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @AndyOnFarmWine When I go out to eat, I drink Champagne, White Burgundy and Northern Rhone Syrah. Classics. #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso @demilove @KeeperColl @Luke_Boland - Were you pretty familiar with the food at @lasirenany before joining their team? - #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @demilove @KeeperColl @lasirenany Well, Josh Laurano was all over the company. I knew he has crazy talent. New menu though. #SommChat

Andy Phillips ‏@AndyOnFarmWine @Luke_Boland @Eataly @DelPosto @lasirenany do you have a favorite region #SommChat

Rita Jammet ‏@CaravelleChamp @Luke_Boland have you had to travel extensively to Italy when learning about Italian wines? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @CaravelleChamp Only been to Piedmont so far. Intensive Langhe tasting. Hoping to go back to Tuscany/Trentino soon! #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines put Friuli in the mix for your next Italy visit. Love the #CabFranc from some places there #SommChat

Douglas Trapasso ‏@demilove @KeeperColl - Do you know many people past a certain age (I'm #coughcough 51) who have broken into wine as Plan B career? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @demilove @KeeperColl @lasirenany Well, Josh Laurano was all over the company. I knew he has crazy talent. New menu though. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @demilove Me personally, no, but I believe anything is possible! I'm sure you wouldn't be the only one and I bet you will crush it #SommChat

Stephanie Miskew CSW ‏@StephanieMiskew @Luke_Boland Do you have a personal favorite food & wine pairing from the @lasirenany menu? #SommChat @KeeperColl #Dotell #WineWednesday

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @StephanieMiskew gr8 to see u on #SommChat today!

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @StephanieMiskew Artichoke Carpaccio with Tonatto sauce w/ Vietti Arneis or grilled swordfish with 2010 i Capitani Fiano #SommChat

Stephanie Miskew CSW ‏@StephanieMiskew A couple #perfect pairings from @Luke_Boland of @lasirenany!!! #wine #SommChat @KeeperColl #WW #WineWednesday

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland How was @lasirenany #wine list created – is there a theme? #SommChat

Luke Boland@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Not beholden to a theme, but always value-minded and open to inspiration. List features classics and underdogs #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I rely on my vendors to show cool stuff and my staff to give input. If my team doesn’t want it, I don’t either #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl The initial build was my job, the direction in which it grows is open to many different inputs. That cultivates a team #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland What was it like working for @DrinkEatLove ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I still do! Guy has a big heart. Incredibly exuberant and passionate. Infectious excitement about Italian wine #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @DrinkEatLove teaches perfect balance of regimented service standards delivered with love and hospitality #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr. shy #SommChat peep: what #wine region would like to visit? Is it hard to find the time to travel w/ UR Work? @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I want to go to Chile and Argentina. Worlds largest outdoor pool is in Chile too. Wine+Pool=ideal visitation #SommChat

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Finding time is tough, but if you foster a strong team they will have your back when you need to take a break. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland Are there any practices that you learned from @DrinkEatLove that you will carry over to @lasirenany ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl No specific practices… but attention to detail and diligence is a style gleaned from @DrinkEatLove #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl We have similar organizational habits. We think similarly about service/business dichotomy. It’s why we jive well. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl q fr Shy #SommChat peep: what R some of ur Fav #Champagnes to drink that don't break the bank? @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl recently fell in love with Pehu Simmonet from Verzenay. Also Thierry Triolet is amazing juice from Chamery. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Marc Hebrart Rose also really over delivers, and Ruppert Leroy is a touch more expensive, but super good! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep: Heard U had a rough road to get to #SommsUF Competition in #Austin - can you share the deets @Luke_Boland ?

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Yes indeed! driving 4 hours through a blizzard to get out of NYC to Connecticut where planes were flying. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Still missed my flight... sprinted to catch the other. left suit bag at security. sprinted back and forth for that #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Missed my flight home too because of traffic jam and had to check my bag due to too many magnums!! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Stayed at local hotel until 5:50 which was next flight home to go immediately into work. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl At the end of the day though... SO MUCH WORTH! #SommChat

Stephanie Miskew CSW @StephanieMiskew @Luke_Boland Now THAT's dedication!!! #SommChat #largeformatlover #wine #WW @KeeperColl

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @StephanieMiskew @KeeperColl Champagne sabers and magnums of wine/vodka are not items you leave at an airport! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland What were some of the main qualities you considered when choosing the #wines 4 @lasirenany ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I always weigh value. Where will a wine fit on my list? Here, $100/under is huge focus. I want accessibility+quality. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Typicity is important too. Can this wine represent the region? And some quirky outliers provide fun splashes of color! #SommChat

Rita Jammet ‏@CaravelleChamp @Luke_Boland indeed, your wine list @lasirenany is super well priced! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @CaravelleChamp @lasirenany Thanks! I want people to be able to drink well and plentifully! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: How often do U taste #wines 4 @lasirenany list - U make decision alone? How often will U update list @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany I taste as often as time allows. I try not to make decisions alone. I want team to be involved #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany List is always evolving based on what I'm shown. I don't know every producer... need help for discoveries! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl difference btwn wine director/somm. Directly purchasing, building a list, and protecting the livelihood of my staff. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl The responsibility scope is way larger. Your team is family. You want the best for them; you find how to provide it. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland What are some responsibilities you have at @lasirenany that are different from those you had at @DelPosto ? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: how many hrs a wk R U at work as #wine director @lasirenany and is it a lot more than when @DelPosto @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany @DelPosto Currently yes, it's a lot. Normally here 10am to midnight at least. Due to perfectionism. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany Want to make sure everything is perfect during this first month. Hours will decrease over time. #SommChat

Christopher Miller ‏@noblewines @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany @DelPosto ahh the #restaurant hours #foodiechats #SommChat I don't miss them

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland When opening @lasirenany, did FOH & BOH collaborate on menu, #wine list, etc? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Not specifically, but there was extensive tasting of food and wine with team. That helped shape some of my decisions #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland Congrats again for being the 2016 #SommsUF champion! How would you describe your competition experience? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl First Austin’s hospitality is legit. Competition is amazing lesson in thinking on your feet. Keeping cool is essential #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl It’s good to learn salesmanship can be more important than the perfect pick. #SommsUF really reinforces that too #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr #SommChat peep: how did you decide format of written #wine List @lasirenany ? how formatted? more white or red & Why? @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany the list is actually on an iPad. Extensive work with Binwise to make it look how I want. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @lasirenany More red, but only because Tuscany and Piedmont are so historic and make a large portion. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland What are some memorable moments about #SommsUF 2016 ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Certainly winning is memorable. Hearing your name announced is really stunning. Audience love was tangible. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Getting asked Swartland soil type for Badenhorst Chenin sticks with me. Reminder to never stop studying #StillDontKnow #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr Shy #SommChat peep: what advice would you give to someone interested in competing in #SommsUF in future @Luke_Boland ?

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Do every competition available. It's a great way to eliminate fears of challenging service scenarios! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Study hard. Theory is always first. When you get there, don't overthink things and don't stress. It's just service. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Never forget your main goal is to make guests happy!! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland U won #magnum of excellence award at #SommsUF 4 top theory score. Have U had time to drink magnum fr @Ronceret21 ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl @Ronceret21 @KeeperColl I don’t want to! That wine will be gorgeous, deserves time unwinding before I drink it. #SommChat

Kay Marley-Dilworth ‏@ATXFoodnews Joining @KeeperColl #SommChat late, but wanted to catch @lasirenany @Luke_Boland while I had a moment. #WineWednesday

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @ATXFoodnews @KeeperColl @lasirenany Here I am! Any burning questions? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl q fr shy #SommChat peep: was being a #wine director goal in UR career? Do U use culinary training in UR #wine jobs & if so how @Luke_Boland

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Not a specific goal I set, but something that always allures you to work hard. I think it's a good aspiration! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl absolutely use culinary training. Understanding fundamental technique helps. Understanding cooking vocab too. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Knowing how things are prepared helps anticipate how they will taste and feel. Kinda like wine making, no? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland How did you make UR #winefoodpairing at #SommsUF 2016? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl It’s not about finding perfect wine. In my mind there is no such thing as perfect pairing. Too complex to be so easy! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Structure is important though. The right balance of acid lift or tannic structure have their place. Texture counts. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland@KeeperColl Find threads that intertwine and work with it. Bring attention to highlights and make them brighter. Subtlety is fun! #SommChat

Rita Jammet ‏@CaravelleChamp @Luke_Boland maybe a silly question: what is the max number of wines one can taste before palate fatigue? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @CaravelleChamp I think that's individually driven... I've also never counted. Maybe a silly answer too... #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl .@Luke_Boland What are you looking forward 2 most on your trip to #Burgundy courtesy of @BeckyWasserman ? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl if twitter allowed 50,000 characters instead of 140 I might be able to accurately answer that question. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Can’t even form expectations due to anticipated awesomeness. Still in awe of @BeckyWasserman generosity. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl But, most excited to meet the people. Winemakers always provide otherwise unattainable context. Brilliant people. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland Where do you see yourself in the #wine industry in the next 3-5 years? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl I’m more of a short term goals guy. I stress the details week-week, not year-year. Focus now, the rest will unfold. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KepperColl Wherever I am though, I’m sure I’ll be happy. If I look back in 5 years and read this tweet and it’s true… Success! #SommChat

Jean Reilly MW ‏@JeanKReilly @KeeperColl @Luke_Boland Congrats on being the #sommsUF champion! Quite an achievement!! Did you expect to win? #SommChat #WineWednesday

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @JeanKReilly @KeeperColl Thanks! Never expect to win, only give your best honest effort. If you've done the work it will show! #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Q fr shy #SommChat peep: do you ever see yourself moving away from #NYC #wine scene and if so where and why @Luke_Boland ?

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Currently no. I'm having too much fun here! I would rather go abroad than domestic though. New challenge! #SommChat

ormiga ‏@ormiga @Luke_Boland @KeeperColl late #SommChat curious how sommeliers approach suggesting=show just the shop window &if cust inquistive then more?

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @ormiga @KeeperColl We should be driving the conversation. Need to talk to guests to see what they normally like/drink. #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @ormiga @KeeperColl producer familiarity is important to know when they say what they like you know what a good entry point is. #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl @Luke_Boland What do you like to do in your spare time? #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Catching up on sleep has become a favorite past time. Having great meals with my beautiful @Jess_Kwong also the best! #SommChat

Luke Boland ‏@Luke_Boland @KeeperColl Weather now is kinda lame for fun stuff though. Netflix iZombie now, racquetball in the warm season. Any challengers? #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Time to wrap up! Hope U enjoyed talking #Wine w/ 2016 #SommsUF Champion & @lasirenany #wine director @Luke_Boland on #SommChat

KeeperCollection ‏@KeeperColl Great to have @Luke_Boland #wine director @lasirenany join us today for #SommChat. We hope everyone learned as much as we did! #WW
