Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers - Atlantic Canada Chapter


We are the Atlantic Canada 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) .

We hold periodic tastings of fine wines, beers, and spirits which are open to all members. Tastings are held around the region so that everyone has a reasonable chance to attend.

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

Our members can be found throughout the Atlantic Provinces, providing expertise in wines and the wine trade in their roles as Sommeliers in restaurants, resorts, hotels, wine bars, and as agents and merchants. Some of our members are associates who have attained the designation through study but choose to consider the knowledge as an enhancement to their enjoyment of wine and other fine beverage.
