Food & Wine magazine has named Vilma Mazaite, a sommelier at Austin’s LaV restaurant, as one of its 2015 Sommeliers of the Year.  Only six other sommeliers in the nation received such honors and Mazaite was the only sommelier in the southwest to be named to this prestigious list. 

Mazaite is known throughout Austin for both her exceptional Burgundy program as well as her love for introducing her customers to unique, obscure varieties.  Her extensive travels to wine regions all over the world are evident in her curated wine list that compiles a diverse selection of some of the best wines in the world.
