Sommelier Australia picks 12 semifinalists for its Best Sommelier contest

22 Aug 2020

The top 12 highest scoring candidates from the Best Sommelier of Australia stage 1 exam have been invited to pass through to the semi-final round. This included 7 candidates from New South Wales and 5 from Victoria.

Due to COVID-related restrictions, Sommeliers Australia will need to reschedule both the stage 2 (semifinals) and stage 3 (finals) for the competition. While those details remain in flux, Sommeliers Australia expressed confidence that the contest would take place before the end of 2020.
