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:
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..
