The Moët UK Sommelier of the Year competition is the premier accolade in UK wine service. Each year, this prestigious award marks one person out as the UK’s most skilful, knowledgeable and gifted sommelier. The competition is open to professional sommeliers and waiting staff working in the UK. Past winners include luminaries such as Gerard Basset, Ronan Sayburn and Xavier Rousset.
The Moët UK Sommelier of the Year competition has been organised by the Academy of Food & Wine Service (AFWS) since1980, and is internationally recognised by the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI). This year, the Academy will partner for the fifth time with Champagne Moët & Chandon, and for the third time organise the competition in partnership with the UK’s leading hospitality media group, The Caterer.
The search for the 2017 Moët UK Sommelier of the Year will culminate in a finals day and drinks reception at the Savoy on the 17th July 2017.
