Yannick Benjamin from "Uncorked" stars in the Esquire Network reality docu-series.

A visit to Bordeaux at age 13 inspired Yannick Benjamin to get involved with wine, and he is now a Sommelier at New York's University Club and lead lecturer for Saturday seminars at Le Du's Wines in the West Village. In October 2003, a car accident left Yannick paralyzed from the waist down, but that did not deter him from pursuing his passion.
