Welcoming Jonathan to UNZ

We are pleased to announce that Jonathan has joined our Auckland team. He is a member of the court of master sommeliers.

The Court of Master Sommeliers was established to encourage quality standards for beverage service in hotels and restaurants. Jonathan brings the skills and experience to independent taste and assesses the wines that we offer for export, as well as offers assistance to wineries if required.


Court of Master Sommeliers

The Court of Master Sommeliers was established to encourage improved beverage knowledge and service standards in hotels and restaurants. Education was then and remains today, the Court’s charter. The first successful Master Sommelier examination was held in the United Kingdom in 1969. By April 1977, the Court of Master Sommeliers was established as the premier international examining body.

Over the four decades, since the Court’s first examination was held, 174 candidates have earned the Master Sommelier Diploma. In the service of wine, spirits and other alcoholic beverages, the Master Sommelier Diploma is the ultimate professional credential anyone can attain worldwide.
