The Himalyan Sherpa Behind this Wine Label

The Himalayan Mountains and the Sonoma County wine country couldn’t be further apart. But not to one sommelier, so inspired by a man who leads expeditions up and down Mt. Everest, that she put his name on a wine label.

Meet Ngima Sherpa. Nepalese by birth, with family in Tibet, he now has a wine named for him, Ngima’s Cuvee. Last night Ngima (pronounced knee-ma) was at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in San Francisco for the launch of this wine.
