ASI Sommelier Guidelines

The ASI is pleased to provide you, our members, the ASI Sommelier Guidelines, which we familiarily refer to as the “Grids”. These documents set the bar for a global sommellerie standard.

The creation of this reference work was truly a monk’s work. It was made possible by the tremendously fruitful cooperation of many of our members from all around the world. They contributed for over two years to make this a real masterpiece. This is what makes it so special, as we have taken into account all the different cultures and customs that our ASI association embraces.

This is a living document, it will be updated every year, please feel free to send your comments to our ASI Liaison Officer, Tim Vollerslev ([email protected]). He will collect all comments, process them and then present them to the parties concerned. This way, we will keep our finger on the pulse so that we are always well up to date.

As you will notice there is an ASI watermark embedded into these documents.  These documents are the property of ASI and intended exclusively as a benefit for our member countries exclusively. To our presidents, feel free to share it with your members, and your educational institutional partners, but remember having access to these documents is a value for you and your educators alone. If you have any additional questions, don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected]

We, the ASI Board, would like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers for their contribution and their enthusiastic efforts, which have contributed to the realization of this unique work.
