Sommelier: or wine steward, is a trained and knowledgeable wine professional, normally working in fine restaurants, who specializes in all aspects of wine and beverage service. They pair and suggest wines that will best complement each particular food menu item. A Sommelier’s role is much broader than working only with wines, and must encompass all aspects of service, with an enhanced focus on wines, beers, spirits, cocktails, non-alcoholic beverages and coffee.
Then taking all that knowledge and unleashing it upon the customer to give them an outstanding experience. It is a true passion of food and beverage that drives them day in and day out.
Here at Home Somm we strive to make that a reality for everyone, every time!
Here at Home Somm we strive to make every Pairing event one of a kind. We can create a personalized pairing menu of food and wine based on all your favorite items, or allow us to create a truly unique one of a kind Pairing menu for you. All you need to do is sit back and relax and allow us to do what we do best, put a smile on you and your guests faces.
Imagine having a restaurant Pairing menu brought right to your house, or served at our location. You don’t have to lift a finger. Allow us to come in, setup, cook, serve and then clean up. Our most popular menu is the 5 & 5. Five wines paired with a 5 course menu. We can make it as small as passed apps, to as big as a full sit down five course dinner. And everything in between. From an intimate two person dinner, to a large party, we don’t shy away from any challenge!
We don’t only do Pairings, but will come and run you through a winery/wine shop style Tasting of wines. We can match it to food you already have, a food truck at your event, or just come and educate about some fun wines, we strive to make your party or event a truly memorable experience with delicious wines and knowledgeable Sommeliers.

From Our Home To Yours
Learning about the world of wines and sharing that passion with others is why we created Home Somm.
They really broke the ‘host’ mold with Chris! He is genuinely a singular talent to his craft. His love of sharing wine with his guests is apparent through his attention to detail, limitless knowledge and robust humor.

I have been to Home Somm twice and each time it’s so different. I love the wide variety of wines and couldn’t believe the low prices points and great flavors. They opened my eyes to new varieties to try that I never would have thought of on my own.

I had so much fun at the Home Somm Happy Hour. We went with 2 couples and also met some really fun people. Chris and Christy made us feel right at home. I love knowing they do home visits too. I plan to host one for my mother’s birthday and invite her friends.
Dana P., Cypress Park, CA
Home Somm could not have been easier to work with! We emailed Chris our dinner menu and within a few days he provided expert pairing recommendations. Our local wine store was thoroughly impressed when we showed up asking for specific wines and complimented our selections. Best of all, our dinner guests were blown away.
