While you dine at a nice restaurant, chances are you might meet the restaurant's sommelier. That's the person who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as how it pairs with your food.

KVUE's Bryan Mays and Yvonne Nava wanted to take a crack at this profession and paid a visit to Olive and June, an elegant restaurant located at 3411 Glenview Ave.

A sommelier gives customers the gift of guidance. You help them pick the wine they'll like most.
