The Association de la Sommellerie Internationale was born in Reims in 1969 as a result of a strong italian will alongside the participation of portoguese, belgian and french delegations, in the wish of creating a point of reference for the profession in Europe and worldwide.
Since then it organizes and promotes projects to valorize the Sommelier, ending in the renowned “Best Sommelier of the World” Competion, held every 3 years and the Continental Competitions: Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe.
A.S.I. (and its bureau, elected by the national delegations) seeks an international recognition for the Sommelier, a standardized didactics worldwide, and the affiliation to Governative corporations related to the wine world, such as O.I.V.
A.S.I. promotes the cultural and professional exchange between the affiliated countries, through courses and meetings, keeping an updated website useful for its members to keep contact with the foreign colleagues.
Nowadays, in 2011, A.S.I. counts more than 50 members, thanks to a recent opening towards the asiatic and oceanic countries, which are showing great professional growth.
