CIA Sommelier Summit


CIA Sommelier Summit

Thank you to everyone who attended
the second annual CIA Sommelier Summit!
2017 Dates to be Announced Soon!

Built upon the momentum of last year’s inaugural summit, this three-day conference once again brought together an incredibly dynamic group of wine professionals together from across the country. Our presenters included 17 Master Sommeliers, a handful of CIA alumni, 1 Master of Wine, 1 Certified Master Chef, restaurateurs, vintners, and more. We look forward to bringing you more exciting panels, thoughtful discussions, powerhouse tastings, and amazing talent next year.
