Sommelier exam to be held in the UK for the first time

The International Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI) Sommelier diploma certification exam is being held in the UK for the first time on Monday 4 March 2019 in London.

The exam was established to standardise the level of sommeliers internationally and certification is a valuable asset for a sommelier’s CV, allowing them to work worldwide with proof of their excellence.

On 4 March at the Oriental Club in London, the ASI will offer the International ASI Sommelier diploma certification exam to local sommeliers in association with the Academy of Food & Wine Service and the Institute of Hospitality. This will provide the opportunity for UK-based sommeliers to gain international accreditation.

Applicants must be working Sommeliers with at least four years’ sommelier experience.

Potential candidate wishing to register interest should email events@instituteofhospitality.org or call the Institute of Hospitality events team on 020 8661 4904.
