There are 186 Master Sommeliers in the world. Devon Broglie is one of them. Broglie sees himself as entrusted with the task of expanding public taste, rather than enhancing snobbery, choosing to use his tasting powers for good.

When Wes Mickel was 15, he made his first batch of hard cider with some store-bought apple juice and a little packet of yeast. His passion was born. Years later, he started production for Argus Cidery, turning his hobby into a career that currently markets five varieties of hard cider to Austin and beyond. His dry and crisp ciders are the first to be made wholly from Texas apples and native yeast.
