2018 Taittinger UK Sommelier of the Year

The 2018 Taittinger UK Sommelier of the Year competition is widely regarded as the premier accolade in UK wine service. The competition is open to professional sommeliers and waiting staff working in the UK and will award its 39th recipient in 2018. Past winners include such luminaries of the UK wine landscape as Gerard Basset, Nicolas Clerc, Ronan Sayburn and Xavier Rousset.

After a nail-biting stage of heats the excitement is now building as we prepare to crown the 2018 Tattinger UK Sommelier of the Year following a final day of intensive knock-out competition taking place at London's Savoy Hotel on 16 July.


The live finals take place before an audience of over 300 invited guests. Attendees are a whos who of the London and wider UK fine dining scene. If you are an operator who would like to see the event in action then please apply for tickets on the 'book now' link above.
