B&G Sommelier competition
Photos Photiades Distributors, sole importers of the famous French wine house of Barton & Guestier and the Cyprus Sommeliers Association are organising a Sommelier competition on Thursday, October 30, at 10am at the Karatello Restaurant in Limassol. The Barton & Guestier range represents the diversity of French wines from the main winegrowing regions: Bordeaux, Loire Valley, Burgundy, Beaujolais, Rhône Valley, Languedoc, Gascony and Corsica. With its wide variety of wines, Barton & Guestier enables consumers - from the occasional wine drinker to the connoisseur - to make a journey through France. Entitled to participate are all members of the Cyprus Sommeliers Association, professionals from the island’s leading hotels and restaurants. Candidates will have to undergo four challenges: 1. A written test with questions on the vinus world of France with emphasis on the regions, history and wines of Barton and Guestier; 2. A blind tasting of a white and a red and identifying five spirits and distillations; 3. Serving a bottle of sparkling wine in front of a panel; 4. Decanting a bottle of red wine with a snappy question.
The winner of the competition will be based on candidate’s total marks and will spend four days at the Château Magnol, the hearÙ of Barton & Guestier. The lucky winner will also have the chance to travel and meet the most famous wine region of France and the world, Bordeaux.
