Kurs

Since its foundation in 1969, the Japan Sommelier Association (J.S.A.) has been furthering better understanding of wine and other beverages and for their promotion in Japan. Due to a increasing interest overseas and at even higher standards, J.S.A. sees a need for sommeliers and those in related professions to gain more knowledge and a deeper understanding of sake/shochu and to improve their sommelier skills of sake/shochu. Thus, J.S.A. launched a new certification, J.S.A. Sake Diploma international, which is a qualification for sake/shochu. And, to provide an extensive source of information worldwide – specifically from the standpoint of a sommelier, J.S.A. has compiled the J.S.A. Sake Diploma textbook in English. A textbook of SAKE DIPLOMA English is included in the exam fee. The exam will be conducted in English. For a better preparation, it is recomended to attend the workshop the day before.
