A Sommelier is actually a job that can't really be conferred by a course. You have to work on a restaurant floor to actually become/be a sommelier. BUT our course will definitely give you the tools and understanding you need to become a competent sommelier. So, if you were to take our course and work in the wine side of the restaurant business then you would definitely be a sommelier. An example is our Master of Wine, Christine Marsiglio. She is not a sommelier as she’s never worked on a restaurant floor and so wouldn’t legitimately call herself a sommelier. However, she is a wine expert, and has the knowledge, but less so the practical skills required to be a sommelier. There's always a practical component involved in being a sommelier, which is normally conferred through working in a restaurant.
