Yes, you can! You’ll be able to attend all the masterclasses, go through the quizzes at the preliminary round, and even receive a participation certificate. However, you will not be considered for the finals. If learning is your main objective, we will not stop you from that.

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.

Preliminary masterclasses and quizzes are completely online. Only the finalists will be required to travel to Delhi for the final competition.

We will be hosting a webinar on the 15th October to introduce you to the Olympiad and the team, your mentors, and the plan ahead. There will be masterclasses on 16-17th-18th October, which will be spread throughout the day. Do keep your 21st October 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 27-28th October in Delhi

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. However, we will be asking majority of the questions from what’s presented during the masterclasses. Thus, it is highly recommended that you do attend them all.

Unfortunately not. We record them for our internal purposes, not to be dispensed to attendees.
