Junior Sommeliers Competition

A principle of the Chaîne is to promote the enjoyment, knowledge and understanding of fine wines and crafted beverages for the professional and amateur enthusiast.

A clear goal is to provide help, encouragement and support for the young professionals who will be the best sommeliers of the future.

The International Junior Sommeliers Competition promotes the expertise of the young wine and spirit professional encouraging mastery of wine and spirit knowledge. 


It also offers to the young sommelier an opportunity to present their skills and "savoir faire" under highly competitive, intense and gruelling testing conditions.

This annual competition is open to candidates selected by the National Bailliages.


For the 2020 Competition onwards, the new “International Junior Sommeliers Competition” has the goal of developing the expertise of young wine and spirit professionals with a special emphasis placed on service skills.


The focus of the relaunched Competition is not on those already at or approaching the top of their profession (e.g. those working towards or holding the Advanced Sommelier or Master Sommelier qualifications with the Court of Master Sommeliers) but at those young people who are still developing their skills (e.g. at the level of Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers) and for whom participating in an international competition would bring great benefit, both from an educational point of view as well as one of broadening their experience.
