If you have a passion for wines, serving people, and pairing wine with food, you may want to consider the life of a Sommelier. Although the exam process is rigorous and time-consuming, apps can help you pass and land your dream job filled with wine.
The road to master sommelier is a long and difficult one, but indeed worth it. If your dream job is to be a sommelier, you first need to know a couple of things. One, there are 4 levels of sommelier certifications, starting with the introductory status and going all the way to the highly regarded master sommelier. Of course, the certified sommelier exam for the introductory status the easiest one, since you only may need to study over a weekend to pass the exam. However, the next 3 levels take an immense amount of time and dedication to achieve. On the positive side, once you have reached a level 2 status, you are now able to look for jobs as a sommelier. The job of a sommelier can vary; you can work in a restaurant, cruise ship, resort, or casino. So, whether you like to travel or love the lights of Vegas, being a sommelier can be your dream job. You just have to commit to endless studying to pass the exams. If you are interested in learning about employment and salary levels of different sommelier positions, you can use apps like Glassdoor.
Now that you have decided to commit and study to become a sommelier, it's time to use apps to make studying easier and much more organized. In reality, you will need hundreds of thousands of flashcards to help you commit to memory a vast amount of knowledge that's needed for your job. For example, you will need to learn about wine from the soil to the bottle, like where does the merlot grape grow? What type of soil and climate does it better thrive in? When is it picked and harvested? These questions can and will go on forever, so you can see why a flashcard app would be crucial. So, instead of carrying around thousands of flashcards, you can study anywhere with an app. Additionally, you will have to become an expert at wine tasting and be able to identify wines blindly. For this, you should have an app that gives you expert reviews on wines as well as a feature for you to write your notes. As a sommelier, a major (and most fun) part of your job is food and wine pairing. Therefore, you should download apps that give you tips and knowledge on why you would never pair heavy wines with light dishes or a high alcohol content wine with spicy foods. Apps can certainly help you achieve the goal of becoming a sommelier so you can enjoy a life of wine and adventure.
