Everyone say salut to the lovely and talented Miss Pascaline Lepeltier, beverage director of Rouge Tomate in New York. In 2008, Pascaline placed second runner-up as Best Sommelier in ALL of France, the highest ranking by a woman in that competition EVER. That’s pretty baller right there. She also loves to surf and plays the ukelele. What can this woman not do?
