About This Luminary

David Lynch

Sommelier, Author, Restaurateur

David Lynch is a sommelier, author and the owner of St. Vincent, San Francisco's acclaimed Mission District tavern. David draws inspiration from all over the world in making his wine selections, but Italy remains a first love. He was most recently the Wine Director of San Francisco's Michelin-starred Quince and its sibling, Cotogna, and was named 2011 Wine Director of the Year by San Francisco magazine.

David Lynch Supports

The James Beard Foundation

Founded in 1986, the James Beard Foundation's mission is to celebrate, nurture, and honor America's diverse culinary heritage through programs that educate and inspire. A cookbook author and teacher with an encyclopedic knowledge about food, James Beard, who died in 1985, was a champion of American cuisine. He helped educate and mentor generations of professional chefs and food enthusiasts, instilling in them the value of wholesome, healthful and delicious food. Today the Beard Foundation continues in the same spirit by administering a number of diverse programs that include educational initiatives, food industry awards, scholarships for culinary students, publications, chef advocacy training, and thought-leader convening.
