Default Wine Captain

I know this is a really trivial question but what the heck. Can the
term wine *captain* be used as a synonym for sommelier? I know wine
*steward* can. But captain? Yes, I tried Google but found nothing
definitive; but then maybe I'm just not adept at Google. ;-)

Thanks all,
Jack

Not really a phrase you tend to hear any more (just as you don't have captains on the wait floor), but I do think it was used as an equivalent phrase, back when they didn't want patrons to have to encounter French words.
