Food & Wine has released the top sommeliers of 2012 list, including Pizzeria Locale's Matthew Mather. Calling it "the year of the little man," F&W selected sommeliers who have "created phenomenal lists that often combine the world’s most famous wines with rigorously selected bottles from small, independent producers or up-and-coming areas." How does Mather fit the type? According to F&W, he's a game-changer when it come to unique and reasonable pizza wine. Mather on his wine list: “The basic concept was to have a collection of compelling, off-the-beaten-track wines that are really delicious with pizza."
