Letters: Becoming a water sommelier

Mr. Dowd:

Nice to meet you. I'm Emiko Nagai, a university student in Japan.

I read your story about water sommelier (Aquaman at the Ritz-Carlton) written on August 08, 2002. I do want to know how to in be qualified as water sommelier. If you have any information, please let me know.

-- Emiko, Tokyo, Japan

Dear Emiko:

Because it is such a new field of endeavor, there is no official organization that qualifies water sommeliers.

I suggest that in addition to making your own intense study of the many types of waters and what foods they would pair well with, you make an arrangement with a chain of restaurants or hotels to support your efforts and agree to grant you the title of their water sommelier once you prove your knowledge and ability to work with customers in making selections.

Best wishes in your venture.
