Introductory Sommelier Course & Exam Level I

The Master Sommelier Introductory Sommelier Course & Exam is the first of four required steps to become a Master Sommelier. The program is given over a two day period with candidates receiving intensive review, instruction and training by a team of Master Sommeliers on wines and spirits knowledge, proper wine service, and blind tasting. The program ends on the second day with the Introductory Sommelier Exam, a multiple choice theory exam consisting of 70 questions. The intent of the Introductory Sommelier Course is to provide wine and hospitality professionals with a thorough review to the world of wines and spirits at the highest professional standards.

The Introductory Sommelier Course & Exam is open to all beverage and hospitality professionals interested in pursuing the highest standards of wine service and product knowledge in a fine dining room setting. Candidates come from restaurant, wholesale and retail backgrounds.

The Introductory Sommelier Course & Exam is also a prerequisite for the Certified Sommelier Examinations, which includes a written theory exam, a blind tasting exam and a practical wine service exam. 

Over the four decades since the Court’s first examination was held, only 230 candidates in the world (147 in North America) have earned the Master Sommelier Diploma.  In the service of wine, spirits and other alcoholic beverages, the Master Sommelier Diploma is the ultimate professional credential anyone can attain worldwide.  The NYWCC and Canandaigua are fortunate to have four of them here at one time and it is truly a unique opportunity to listen and learn from some of the most knowledgeable wine and service industry professionals in the world.
