12 Semifinalists in Vienna

The first stage of the 2017 A.S.I. (Association de la Sommellerie Internationale) Contest of the Best Sommelier of Europe taking place in Vienna, Austria, came to and end on Tuesday May 9th in the evening with the announcement of the twelve candidates selected after the quarter final through several written and practical tests.
37 sommeliers from 34 european countries and 3 from the Africa area had come to Austria with one objective : to win the title as Arvid Rosengren did in Sanremo, Italy, in 2013.

The 12 candidates selected for the semifinal are :
• Christian Jacobsen (Danemark/Denmark),
• David Biraud (France),
• Terry Kandylis (Grèce/Greece),
• Julie Dupouy (Irlande/Ireland),
• Raimonds Tomson (Lettonie/Latvia),
• Piotr Pietras (Pologne/Poland),
• Julia Scavo (Roumanie/Romania),
• Aleksandr Rassadkin (Russie/Russia),
• Jakub Pribyl (République Tchèque/Czech Republic),
• Eric Zwiebel (Royaume-Uni/United Kingdom),
• Robert Andersson (Suède/Sweden),
• Fabio Masi (Suisse/Switzerland).

This Wednesday, they will discover practical workshops which will determine who are the three best sommeliers for the great Final planned on Thursday in Vienna. A real suspense, as their names will be announced only at the opening of the Final.
