Shayn Bjornholm, MS is the Education Director for the Washington State Wine Commission, helping spread the word of its world-class vineyards and wines far and wide.  A Master Sommelier since 2005, Shayn also serves as the Assistant Education Director for the Court of Master Sommeliers – Americas, helping design and execute the curriculum, study materials and examination system.  He is really thankful that computers/machines can’t ever simulate the last three ingredients needed that might threaten both positions – unique palates, a real glass of wine and the admittedly peculiar jones he gets when he sees the lightbulb go on for anyone expanding their vinous horizons.
