Dear friends and colleagues,

You are hereby invited to take part in a toast to pay homage to sommeliers across the world, the date is:

Wednesday June 3rd 

International Sommelier Day was established in Mexico in 2013 by a group of enthusiastic sommeliers to celebrate our profession. The date of June 3rd was chosen as it is the same date that ASI was established back in 1969.

In an effort to join our forces globally ASI is hosting an online Zoom-toast. To ensure that we gather as many somms as possible three sessions will be conducted throughout the day. Each session will be hosted by one of the Vice Presidents of ASI with prominent guests such as Best Sommeliers of the World and Continental Sommelier Champions.

Vice President of Asia & Oceania, Saiko Tamura-Soga, will host the first session at 1pm in Tokyo – register here

Vice President of Europe, William Wouters, will host the second session at noon in Belgium – register here

Vice President of the Americas, Ricardo Grellet, will host the third session at 2pm in Chile – register here

Everyone joining is encouraged to bring a bottle of wine for the toast as you introduce yourselves during the session.

Please share this invitation with all the somms in your community. We can’t wait to see you all on Wednesday June 3rd!
