Welcome

We are the British Columbia Chapter of the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.

The Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers (CAPS) is affiliated with the Association de la Sommellerie Internationale (ASI) .

Our mission, as the BC Chapter for the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers is:

  • To raise awareness of the sommelier profession and its value in the hospitality industry and to the general public.
  • To enhance the role of sommelier and promote the culture of wine through instruction, competition, accreditation and events.
  • To provide a professional forum to encourage community, networking and education for our members.

We have three membership levels. Accredited Sommelier, Associate Sommelier, and Student Membership.  You do not have to be a 'Certified Sommelier' to be member of CAPS. 

We hold periodic tastings of fine wines, beers, and spirits which are open to all members. Tastings are sometimes available to non-members for additional fee.  

We work with other sommelier and wine educator organizations around the world to promote our goals and to ensure mutual recognition of sommelier qualifications..
