The Best Sommelier of Canada competition is coming to Vancouver on September 5 at Rogers Area, and it’s going to be epic, because it’s the first time in the events’ history that the competition has been held west of Ontario.

Attendees can expect to see top sommeliers from across Canada come together to compete for the ultimate title of Best Sommelier Canada at the 2017 Nationals Competition for Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.

The winner of this competition will be announced at the Champions Dinner Celebration at Victoria Chinese Restaurant, located at 1055 W Georgia Street, that same evening.
