This series was established in 2017. It is designed specifically for sommeliers, F&B managers, chefs and service employees with a sensitivity for pairing beverages. The School of Wine does not just offer a series of wine tastings during which visitors try wine after wine. While tasting forms a part of the experience, the central focus rests on the type of content obtained in a real school.
As with the CHEF-SACHE main stage, the course seeks to provide lasting experiences, education, networking and insight into the future of the market. They are master classes offered at a world class level, presented by advisors of the same caliber.

The Master Classes are accessible to everyone. Sommeliers, F&B Managers, Service Managers, Press and Bloggers please register here.
