Raw talent - today's nomination Darren Davis

Today's nominee is not a chef but then rules were made to be broken!

Sommelier extraordinaire Darren Davis is a director of Purple Palate and according to his nominee 'he's one of Australia’s few Penfolds Grange specialists - what he doesn't know about Grange isn't worth knowing'.

Darren was hosting and talking about wines at an event at Maroochydore Surf Club and made a big impression on at least one listener. His nominator says Brisbane-based Darren is very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and travels around Australia hosting events for up to 1500 people.

Cheers Darren!
