Third place at the 2021 European-African Sommelier Championship in Limassol, Cyprus.

Cheers and relief!
After four days of demanding theoretical and practical examinations, the jury announced the ranking of the best ten candidates – and thus the names of the three finalists, who were brought on stage immediately afterwards for the performance.

Among them Suwi Zlatic, who finally secured the third place of this sommelier championship.

For the tests at the final, various restaurant situations were set up and staffed with top-class guests – former winners of international sommelier competitions.

Best Sommelier in Austria 2014/21

The State Championship of the Austrian Sommelier Association is the toughest sommelier competition in the country and is currently held every three years.

In 2014 and 2021, Suwi Zlatic scored the highest in all areas and immediately had the audience under control with his charm.

The Tyrolean was able to prevail with a brilliant performance in a competition that was exciting right up to the end.

His first place was also the ticket for the Sommelier World Championship 2016 in Argentina and 2022 in France.

Nervousness, sovereignty and tasting routine ultimately decided the victory.

Vineus Sommelier of the year 2016

The award of the VINEUS joins a long list of prestigious awards:

In the competition for the world’s best sommeliers, he now occupies a place in the top third, last year he won the “European Champagne Ambassador” award for Austria for the first time, and before that he was the winner of the “Ambassadeur de Champagne Autriche”.

In 2014 he was state champion and thus “Best Sommelier Austria”.
