The Best Sommelier in the World

Panel at Best Sommelier 2013

On Monday 22nd April 2013, The Park Lane Hotel in London hosted the finals of the Competition to find the Best Sommelier in the World.

Salvatore was asked to join a panel of five judges, the first time a bartender has been afforded this honour.

32 year old Luca Martini from Arezzo in Italy won the coveted title awarded by ‘WSA’ The Worldwide Sommelier Association.

Salvatore was surprised on the day to receive an award himself, in recognition of his achievements as an ambassador for his native Italy.
