Philippe Faure-Brac has been re-elected as president of the French Sommelier Association (UDSF Union de la Sommellerie Française). He was first elected to the post in 2016. Faure-Brac, who earned the title of Best Sommelier of the World back in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, has long been a high-profile representative of the profession. He has published numerous books and hosted or appeared on many television and radio shows, helping extend the French association’s ability to perform public outreach.
The vote was held at the association’s general assembly. ASI President Andres Rosberg was present for the event, which also celebrated the 50th anniversary of the founding of the French Association.
