WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The Sommelier Experience is your first stop to wine enlightenment. Come prepared to soak up a lot of different topics. Our ambition is to offer you an intensive and immersive course in the everyday duties of international sommeliers, touching on the world of international wine markets, grape varieties, building your own cellar, handing wines, food pairings, wine service and tasting. While our Sommelier Experience can’t certify you as a sommelier, it will give you an impressive head start. Should you wish to learn more, we will recommend several excellent sommelier programs around the world to help further guide you on your path to becoming officially certified.

 

WHAT YOU WILL TASTE

Blind tasting is one of the most challenging, and fun, exercises for any aspiring sommeliers training in the art of fine wine. As an integral part of our Sommelier Experience, you will be put through your paces with a blind tasting of eight wines from around the world. But, of course, we can’t reveal them here...
