WHAT ARE THE TASKS OF A SOMMELIER?

As a sommelier, liquids and wines are your job. From beverage selection to procurement – as a wine expert in the restaurant, you recommend corresponding drinks and spoil the guest with your wine service. The wine cellar is your baby – you take care of the order and overview.

WHEN CAN I BECOME A SOMMELIER?

In addition to training or experience in service as Demichef de Rang or Chef de Rang, additional training as a wine sommelier is required. However, experience and tasting wine are even more important to train the palate and to describe and appreciate the difference between wines. The larger the wine list, the more experience is required.
