Applications close today!

The Chaîne des Rôtisseurs annual “International Jeunes Sommeliers Competition” offers young sommeliers the opportunity to present their skills and “savoir faire” under highly competitive, intense and gruelling testing conditions.

The Competition has the goal of developing the expertise of young wine and spirit professionals with a special emphasis placed on service skills.

The focus of the Competition is not on those already at or approaching the top of their profession (e.g. those working towards or holding the Advanced Sommelier or Master Sommelier qualifications with the Court of Master Sommeliers) but at those young professionals who are still developing their skills (e.g. at the level of Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers) and those for whom participating in an international competition would bring great benefit, both from an educational point of view as well as one of broadening their experience.
