Back in 2006, the Sommelier bug bit me, and I not only became a passionate Sommelier who enjoyed studying every detail about the Somm world (wine, spirit, sake, beer, tea, coffee, gastronomy, etc.), but also decided to register for a local sommelier competition. The instant gratification after winning the first step of this competition was incredible, all my hard work suddenly paid off. When the competition ended for me after the semi-final, I was devastated and had no network to support me. So, sadly, I quit competing, despite knowing I was a good candidate. But, I committed myself to stay actively supportive in preparing the next generation of restaurant, hotel and tourism professionals.
Equipped with the critical experience of working in the wine industry in North America, and Europe for more than ten years now, and from understanding the growing needs of this industry and how much personal sacrifice it takes to participate in Sommelier competitions (and how obsessed we can be about them), I am launching a program dedicated to every serious wine professional: SOMM360.
