Champagne was flowing and glasses were clinking at the celebration launch of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) in British Columbia. President Michelle Bouffard welcomed guests to the private room at Hawksworth Restaurant (in the Rosewood Hotel Georgia) and introduced the BC association and its board members. Wine experts alike agree that the new association will help bring big opportunities to the province and members are happy to now be affiliated with the prestigious Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI) which is based in Paris. Members of the BC CAPS chapter will now also be eligible to compete in the Best Sommelier of the World Competition – as well as pouring you your favourite wines at all of Vancouver’s best world-class restaurants.
