The Best Sommelier in the World


On Monday 22nd April 2013, The Park Lane Hotel in London will host the finals of the great Competition that will crown the Best Sommelier in the World.

Arguably one of London’s finest examples of Art Deco, the hotel’s listed, 11,000-square foot Ballroom complex in the heart of London’s Piccadilly, will be the magical backdrop for a unique programme that will bring together and compare the professionalism of  Sommeliers from 31 Countries.

Three finalists will be selected out of these Sommeliers and presented at 4.00 pm on Monday 22nd April 2013. Promptly after the three finalists’ selection, we will witness a series of very interesting and captivating challenges and performances that will end in the proclamation of the Best Sommelier in the World 2013.

Immediately after the winner is selected, the announcement will appear on the website of the association www.worldwidesommelier.com

Running simultaneously from 10 am to 8.30 pm, a first class wine tasting will be held in The Park Lane Hotel ballroom. Made in Italy will be the event’s topic. A great opportunity to experience the best of Italian wine and food throughout the day.

Some well-known producers such as Gaja, Sassicaia Tenuta San Guido, Berlucchi, Antinori, Cantina Terlano, Jermann, Bellavista and Feudi San Gregorio will be showcasing their fabulous wines (see the full list of participants below).

Mr. Franco Ricci, the President of the Worldwide Sommelier Association, the largest Association of Sommeliers with over 100,000 members, has declared his enthusiasm in organising the foremost competition in the World of Wine, in the best possible location: London, an internationally renowned leading business centre, and cultural melting pot for global food and wine.

Co-hosts will be the UK Sommelier Association, headed by the President Mr. Andrea Rinaldi and his General Manager Ms. Federica Zanghirella. Their main duty will be overseeing the smooth running of the day’s events as well as being the crucial contact for all logistics.
