Formerly the wine director for the Alinea Group, a role created specifically for her, Jill Zimorski migrated to the LVMH portfolio of Champagne in Chicago (namely, Krug, Ruinart, Dom Perignon and Veuve Clicquot) while also pursuing her master sommelier certification. “A lot of sommeliers view this move from the floor as going to the dark side, but I won’t be selling anything,” says Zamorski. “My goal and role is to support, educate, train and help more people drink more Champagne.”
