Categories: ,

This book was born out of my need, when I was aspiring sommelier, to have a memorandum, a well-organized, streamlined and intuitive notebook on which to study. Between home and work I had very little time and I used every free moment to study, from the train to various and eventual waits. In this book you will find all my notes on wine and food that I collected during the AIS courses, the university of Gastronomic Sciences and in the work of nearly 8 years like wine blogger. I sincerely hope it will be useful to you during the sommelier courses and to support theAIS sommelier exam, FIS, Fisar and other associations. And, if you are already a sommelier, to take with you the world of wine in one book about wine.

Special edition

Special Edition printed on eco-friendly Made in Italy paper obtained from agro-industrial by-products that replace part of the cellulose coming from trees with a creative and technological process that uses only green energy. In particular, the waste from wine processing was used both for the cover and the bookmark printed on 350 g Favini Crush Uva FSC ™, and for the internal pages printed on 90 g Favini Crush Uva FSC ™.

A wine-themed gift for sommeliers and wine lovers

With the sommelier book you will receive for free the double-sided bookmark in grape cardboard with all the colors of wine and beer. I pack each book carefully, punched with a small lucky four-leaf clover, with recycled kraft paper, stamp the book and write your name to pamper you, or simply to give it to you ready to give to a special person passionate about wine like you (if it's a gift please specify it in the notes so that I can write the recipient's name).

    The book is a well done summary of the 3 levels for sommeliers. It allows a review of all the topics in a very simple way and is very useful as an outline for the study in preparation for the exam. Obviously, to deepen the various themes it is necessary to refer to other more detailed texts, but the purpose of this book is largely achieved.
    In my case I had a very bad experience with the Nexive/Poste Italiane courier, who did not deliver the book to me and was unable to tell me where it was. After 3 days of vain searches, I managed, thanks to a postal employee, to find out where it was and I went directly in person to collect it from the warehouse. Among other things, the package was completely open, but luckily the books were intact.
