Australia's newest A.S.I. Certified Sommelier
On Monday 27 February, the inaugural 'International A.S.I. Sommelier Diploma' certification exam was held in 11 countries across the world.
From the 58 candidates who took part, Australia's only candidate, Raffaele Mastrovincenzo, was one of the successful 47 to pass and receive his International A.S.I. Sommelier Diploma.
The 'International A.S.I. Sommelier Diploma' certification exam was created to help:
• Develop the Sommelier profession;
• Enhance the quality of Sommeliers worldwide;
• Establish international standards for Sommeliers.
With the success of this years qualification exam Sommeliers Australia hopes that A.S.I. will continue to offer sommeliers from across the globe the opportunity to achieve an internationally recognised standard of sommellerie. In future years, we hope that more Australian sommeliers will take advantage of this certification programme, without the need for expensive international travel.
