After growing up in a small town in the Córdoba province of Argentina, Pablo Braida felt the urge to see the world. His travels initially took him to London, where he worked in a top hotel and was introduced to the world of fine wine. While in Barcelona he met his wife Lila, who was on vacation in Spain, and followed her to Napa where he began studying with the Court of Master Sommeliers. In 2022, he passed the Master Sommelier Diploma Examination, becoming the first Argentinian and second South American to achieve the title. He currently lives in Texas, where he has worked with Estate Wine Brokers and as a consulting sommelier for Monarch Restaurant in Dallas.
