The UK Sommelier Association Annual Walkaround Tasting event has become one of the premier wine events in London, celebrating the art of sommelierie in the refined surroundings of Le Meridién Piccadilly.
We continue with our international feel, mirroring the fascinating multicultural backgrounds of our students, thus having wines, spirits, beers, sakes and culinary delights from various countries from around the world. We welcome you and hope you have a wonderful day.
The centerpiece of the day is the Graduation, where we celebrate the hard work, dedication and passion of our students in achieving their ultimate goal. We present them with their signature tastevins and diplomas, and raise our glasses toasting their success,, both now and in the future.
"The sommelier community is fundamentally important for the entire wine industry in this country as they are the storytellers. We are proud to support their education, career progression, profession and their important role with consumers. What better way to celebrate this impact, than sharing their Graduation with an audience made up of their fellow sommeliers, wine dignitaries, professionals, and special guests. Ultimately, it reflects and honours the strong bond between the producers and the sommeliers serving their wines".
Federica Zanghirella, Vice-President & Course Director.
