2022 uk sommelier association

Roll up, roll up to the biggest showcase of exceptional sommelier talent in England with the UK Sommelier Association. The event includes the Best Chef of Italian Cuisine competition, The Italian Show, wine masterclasses, mixology classes, cooking classes and a Walkaround tasting from 11:30am to 9:00pm (Monday. May 30th, 2022 – Leonardo Royal London St Paul’s).

I am pleased to be called to judge once again and take part in deciding which fine sommelier takes home the prestigious title of the ‘Best in 2022’. The event is proudly sponsored by the globally recognised and acclaimed Italian winery Villa Sandi.

I always enjoy both the fine comradeship yet professional battles that goes on between the sommeliers on the day, each spot on the spot to perform their most gracious expertise to the panel of judges, attention to each detail scrutinised and scored. This is such a warm event annually and thanks to the dedication of both Andrea Rinaldi (President) and Federica Zanghirella (Vice President) it has grown to be an unmissable entry in our wine calendars.
