A sommelier is a beverage master. The Young Sommeliers’ Olympiad constitutes wines, beers + other ferments, spirits + other distillates, and cocktails as well.
Though there’s no syllabus, quizzes will primarily focus on the hotel management college level knowledge. Beyond that, definitely focus on what’s shared during the masterclasses.
This is a completely online program, at least this year. The masterclasses will be conducted online, and so will be the quizzes. You need not leave your home to be a champion
No. We will be hosting a webinar on the 20th to introduce you to the Olympiad and the team, your mentors, and the plan ahead. There will be masterclasses on 23-24th-25th August, which will be spread throughout the day. Do keep your 28th+29th August locked as we will be conducting the quizzes in batches and at different times during the day. You’ll know what is the exact timing for your quiz in advance.
Only if you progress in to the finals, you’ll be required on 4th September.
Quizzes will be conducted online and will be monitored by Team YSO.
Yes, every participant receives a duly signed certificate by the YSO team.
No it isn’t. But, hey, we will surely be asking you questions from what’s presented in the masterclasses. Thus, it is highly recommended that you do attend them all.
