Sommelier Management HOST 9116

A successful sommelier must have excellent product knowledge in order to be able to identify which products are best suited to the style of a restaurant and its clientele. Our Sommelier Management course teaches you where and from which sources to buy wine. Study the law in Ontario, and become skilled at sourcing, wine-list development, sales and marketing, cellar management and inventory. Learn how to develop a professional manner for dealing with staff, and explore the current human resource practices and training that are used to create a top-notch workforce and operate a successful wine program. This module concludes with a final service exam, a project and a compulsory stage experience.


You must be at least 19 years of age and you must have completed our HOST 9112 Sensory Development and Wine Styles course.
