Molly Wismeier among the Nation’s Best Sommeliers

Food & Wine Magazine has recently been named Molly Wismeier, director of wine and spirits for Restaurant R’evolution, among the nation’s top seven sommeliers of 2015. The distinction is particularly rewarding and meaningful since a panel of master sommeliers from across the country select the nominees. “I am humbled and deeply honored to have been chosen by my peers,” said
Wismeier who is one of three women selected this year. Fluent in Russian and a passionate world historian, Wismeier’s most compelling talent is navigating and translating the language of wine.

Food & Wine’s deputy wine editor Megan Krigbaum writes that Wismeier is “an exceptional talent scout, she stocks her 10,000-bottle cellar with impressive old vintages from lesser known talents as well as superstars. We’re so pleased to have Molly in this great group.”

Molly Wismeier honed her skills at some of the finest dining establishments in the country including Charlie Trotter’s, Ambia, MK The Restaurant and Cru. In 2010 executive chefs John Folse and Rick Tramonto approached Wismeier with an opportunity to work with them on a brand new joint venture, Restaurant R’evolution at the Royal Sonesta New Orleans. The opportunity to move to a city renowned for its culinary culture and history was one she could not pass up. “New Orleans is an epicenter for food, wine, art, and so much more,” notes Wismeier. “This city embodies the best of
all the things I love in one place.” Restaurant R’evolution, located in the heart of the French Quarter at Royal Sonesta, opened its doors in June of 2012.

For the past three years as director of wine and spirits, Wismeier has focused on maintaining a world-class selection of fine wines from around the world with an emphasis on the seven nations that originally settled in Louisiana and make up the backbone of what has become known as Creole cuisine. Wismeier’s extensive wine list features selections from emerging wine-producing regions as well as selections from some of the lesser-known regions of Lebanon, Slovenia and Greece.

Restaurant R’evolution participates in numerous special events throughout the year. During the upcoming New Orleans Food & Wine Experience, Restaurant R’evolution will host a special wine dinner on Wednesday May 20th at 7:00 p.m. An exploration of great Burgundy, the evening features Henriot Champagne, William Fevre Chablis, Bouchard Pere & Fils Burgundy and a special menu created by two of the country’s most renowned chefs.
