The improvement of sommellerie in Venezuela is not only regarding the quantity of sommeliers but also their quality, their profesional quality now appreciated by the restaurant business, the press and the enogastronomical world. We have noticed  an increasing number of sommeliers for the latest years specially because the restaurateurs started to trust the profession. Then, the quality of serving the beverages, proposing gastronomic courses and pairing food and wines has been improving a lot, satisfying the most demanding clients.
Giuseppe Vaccarini, president of the A.S.I. Exam committee, was leading the panel of judges. We can recognize him on the photo, with  Leo d’Adazzio, president of the sommeliers association of Venezuela,, the winner, José Gregori Pereira, and  Dayana Medina, director of the  sommeliers academy of Venezuela.
