Despite the obvious difficulties of organizing events in the current climate, the Russian Association of Sommeliers (RAS) was proud to hold its annual Moscow Sommelier Cup. This year’s event, the fourth in the history of the association, was held on 10-11 October in Moscow. Vladimir Kosenko, a sommelier and leading teacher at one of the wine schools, prevailed over 54 other competitors.
The Russian Association of Sommeliers also announced the postponement of its competition for the title of the Best Sommelier of Russia 2020 to the end of February 2021. Roman Sosnovskiy will represent the nation at the Best Sommelier of Europe and Africa contest currently scheduled for 2021.
