The 10 Most Buzz-Worthy Sommeliers In Chicago Of 2016

David Murr - Tru Sommelier

Once again, we present our list of Buzz-worthy Sommeliers. Like previous years, this list includes a wide variety of somms, from those early in their careers, to well established somms that for some reason or another don’t always get the recognition we think they deserve. Like last year, we have also included a Sommelier who works in a retail establishment.

New to the list this year is our first ever repeat recipient, and for the first time, an entry that covers not just a single somm, but an entire sommelier team.

We look forward to seeing what they all will do in wine in the upcoming year!

David Murr – Tru

Job Title: Wine Director, Tru
Years of Experience: 10
Certifications: CMS Certified
Job Responsibilities: Purchasing, staff training, creating wine pairings menu and by-the-glass list, working with chef on creating specific pairings to his cuisine, overseeing cocktail program, main presence on floor with guests
Areas of Strength: Italy, Burgundy and Domestic
Why he is Buzz-worthy: While not working at one of the newest places in town, David maintains one of the city’s finest (and perhaps least talked about) great wine lists. “David is very easy to work with. I look for great personality at the table as well as deep wine knowledge for this role; David possesses both,” says Executive Chef Anthony Martin.
