[ONLINE] Toast ‘International Sommelier Day’ with ASI
Date: June 3, 2020#2:00 pm-3:00 pm AEST
You are hereby invited to take part in a toast to pay homage to sommeliers across the world, on Wednesday 3 June, in celebration of International Sommelier Day!
International Sommelier Day was established in Mexico in 2013 by a group of enthusiastic sommeliers to celebrate our profession. The date of 3 June was chosen as it is the same date that ASI was established back in 1969.
In an effort to join forces globally, ASI is hosting an online Zoom-toast. To ensure that we gather as many sommeliers as possible, three sessions will be conducted throughout the day. Each session will be hosted by one of the Vice Presidents of ASI with prominent guests such as Best Sommeliers of the World and Continental Sommelier Champions.
As Australia is part of the ASI Asia & Oceania region, Sommeliers Australia members are encouraged to join Saiko Tamura-Soga and our regional colleagues in a toast at 2pm AEST!
Vice President of Asia & Oceania, Saiko Tamura-Soga, will host the first session in Tokyo (1pm Tokyo time) – register here

Vice President of Europe, William Wouters, will host the second session in Belgium (12pm Belgium time) – register here

Everyone joining is encouraged to bring a bottle of wine for the toast as you introduce yourselves during the session.
We can’t wait to see you all on Wednesday 3 June!
