Even if they do not benefit from formal recognition within the National Education system, those who are responsible for preparing their students for the profession of sommelier make it a point of honour to defend their profession and to roam a vineyard together once a year. Within the Association Sommeliers Formateurs, a large majority of teachers share their knowledge with students from hotel colleges, consular training centres or private structures, and gather every year at a meeting prior the start of the new school year. This year, they headed for Châteauneuf-duPape where Michel Blanc, director of the Federation of Producers' Unions, and his team welcomed them.
