The Sake Education Council
Sally Mohr earned the title of Master Sommelier in 1995 and was the second woman in the United States to achieve that distinction. She began her wine career as an employee at The Boulder Wine Merchant in 1983 and became a co-owner of this prestigious specialty retail wine shop in 1986.
In 2009, Sally passed the Level II Sake Specialist course conducted by John Gauntner in Japan. She became a board member of the Sake Education Council, whose mission is to spread the word of the joys of sake. Kanpai!
She continues to put her palate to the test by judging in various regional and international wine competitions.
Besides wine, Sally enjoys spending time with her husband and two grown children in the wonderful outdoors of Colorado. Her travels have taken her to many wine regions around the world and her long term goal is to feel the dirt between her toes in all of them.
