A good sommelier is like a fine wine -- people are willing to pay up for the experience. Often employed by upscale restaurants, they're compensated handsomely for their ability to recommend the right Bordeaux to suit the meal -- not just for pulling the cork.

In New York City, for example, some sommeliers earn upwards of $90,000, including tips, according to PayScale.
