An exam that is considered to be the toughest and most demanding of such in the drinks business, with a pass rate of just around 4%. There are currently (2023) only 267 members worldwide who bear the coveted title „Master Sommelier“.
Over the years I have developed a diversified portfolio. With my long standing experience both as a coach and a facilitator in the trade and hospitality business I dedicate myself to professional hosting at presentations and masterclasses.
I'd be happy to support you as consultant, to open new markets and strategies for wineries and business-related associations; further I´m at your disposal on purchasing concerned issues.
Please feel free to contact me and together we can decide how I can assist you on a individual base to realise your projects and plans.
