Asia Best Sommlier in French Wines

The international sommelier competition on French wines was organised back in the 1980s by Sopexa and the French Ministry of Agriculture. The last 20 years saw a tremendous increase in the number and level of sommeliers in the Asian region, and a rising demand for knowledge and for acknowledgement. For all these reasons, it was decided to relaunch this competition in 2015 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

This international competition gathered candidates from 8 Asian countries: Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Macao, South Korea and China. The two best sommeliers of each country were selected and invited to participate.
