Once upon a vine, in the charming world of Irish wine enthusiasts, a guild was born in 1958. Now, in a twist of fate that could rival the most delightful grape varietal, the Irish Guild of Sommeliers has thrown open its doors to wine aficionados of all backgrounds. Gone are the days of exclusive CMS exams being the standard membership prerequisite. If you’re in the wine biz – whether it’s sales, service, or just sipping in style – you’re now eligible to join the merry band of wine enthusiasts. It’s a great group of people who love a good quiz. The Guild also recently unveiled a brand-new, whimsically enchanting logo that reflects its commitment to embracing diversity and giving its wine-loving heart a modern, vibrant beat. Cheers to a Guild that’s as eclectic as the wines it celebrates!
