Dear Presidents and Friends, dear ASI friends,
In light of recent events, we’ve decided to open up registration early for the next ASI Contest of the Best Sommelier Europe & Africa, to be held in Cyprus from November 16 – 20, 2020. The form can now be found below.
Note: although the official deadline is not until September 19, candidates who have already been selected by their national association are encouraged to register now. Given the current circumstances, this will let us take advantage of the ‘extra time’ at home and get a jump on reviewing and processing applications.
For those associations that have not yet been able to select their representative: no worries! Entries will be accepted by the ASI Technical Committee until September 19. And whether you apply now or later, we look forward to greeting you at the competition, which will bring together sommeliers from 40 countries around Europe and Africa.
In the meanwhile, we wish you healthy and productive ‘involuntary home vacations.’ We have all watched as the world comes together to fight off this terrible pandemic; with fortitude and discipline, it will hopefully end sooner rather than later. And that is something we can all raise a glass to!
