Chaîne Young Sommeliers Competition

Monday December 31 is the deadline to sign up for the Chaîne Young Sommeliers Competition. A competitor must be at least 21 (twenty-one) on January 12, 2019, and must be born on or after October 1, 1988. A competitor can compete 3 times in regionals, twice in nationals and once in the International competition. On January 12, 2019, we will hold the first round of competition for the 2019 Best Young Sommelier title, to be awarded in Napa, California in late April. There’s no cost, and lots of professional benefit and prizes. The prizes awarded to our 2018 winner were likely the most valuable ever given to a winning sommelier in a competition of this type.
