Michael Scherzberg

As the sommelier of the New Orleans Grill inside the Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans, Michael Scherzberg maintains a 10,000 bottle list of wines, including an exceptional selection of many Bordeaux Grand Crus and Dom Perignon. A man of many hats, he has worked in almost every restaurant position one could think of. He began in the back of the house and has experience in both the culinary and pastry departments of a number of kitchens. He turned to wine service after a kitchen accident and built on his culinary degree with further training from the Court of Master Sommeliers, the CIA, and Le Cordon Bleu in Adelaide, Australia. His many hats have found homes across the country in a variety of acclaimed restaurants before arriving in New Orleans. Most recently he worked for the Patina Group in Los Angeles, where he spent time as both beverage manager and dining room manager at their restaurants Zucca, Pinot Bistro, and Pinot Hollywood, and before his time on the West Coast he also graced the dining rooms of the American Restaurant in Kansas City, Missouri and The Inn at Little Washington in Virginia. In addition to his skills with wine and food, he is also, by all accounts, a mean hand with a champagne sabre.
