CIA Sommelier Summit

January 27–29, 2019

Join us for our fourth annual CIA Sommelier Summit at the CIA at Copia in downtown Napa.

During this fast-paced, multifaceted three-day summit, we provide networking, skill-building, and sensory training to both new and up-and-coming wine and beverage professionals. This showcases what the CIA does best: teaching and learning, tasting and savoring, meeting new people and seeing old friends—all in the spirit of enjoying the pleasures of the table.

After hearing from myriad experts—some with decades of experience and success, and others who have caused more recent revolutions in the industry—you’ll be invigorated to map out your own path so you can enjoy the journey as well as the achievements.

Our impressive line-up of presenters include:

Bob Bath, MS; Christie Dufault; Orietta Gianjorio; Evan Goldstein, MS; Peter Granoff, MS; Jordan Mackay; Karen MacNeil; Dan Petroski; John Ragan, MS; Andrea Robinson, MS; Dustin Wilson, MS; and Kevin Zraly—with more experts being added every day!
