The Court of Master Sommelier, Americas Introductory Course & Examination is the first of four required steps to become a Master Sommelier. 

The intent of the introductory course is to provide wine and hospitality professionals with a thorough review of the world of wines and spirits at the highest professional standards.

Candidates receive an intensive review by a team of Master Sommeliers on wine and spirits knowledge, proper wine service, and deductive tasting.

The Court of Master Sommeliers was established in 1977 to promote excellence in hotel and restaurant beverage service. Though its members worldwide come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, they share a proven mastery of the art, science, and history that informs a sommelier's work. Read more here.

Sam and his colleagues work hard to create a great experience for our guests, and we couldn't be more proud of what they do!
