Are You Ready for a Milk Sommelier?

Pinot or Cabernet? Skim or Whole? A dairy nut who drinks up to four liters of milk a day says it’s as complex as wine, and is influenced by terroir as well.

Bas de Groot loves milk. He travels the world, preaching the dairy gospel to farmers, who he advises professionally. (De Groot is also an organic grower.) He tells the Washington Post that milk is a “liquid of serious complexity akin to a fine wine.” And, like the best wines, soil, the region, and the person farming the land all play all influence the taste of milk.

There’s no mention in the article if De Groot drinks his milk out of a wine glass nor if he swirls it before sipping.

We’re not sure what the life of a milk sommelier would be like but if you want to know what a 16-hour day of a (wine) sommelier is like, listen to this episode of the Wine Enthusiast podcast.
