" Bailli Délégué Sékumady Condé and his team have proposed an excellent programme "

With much pleasure I can now announce that the 2023 International Final of the Jeunes Sommeliers Competition will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

As Chair of the Competition Committee, I am thrilled that we will be bringing the Final to Slovenia. The Bailliage is well known for its deep belief in Slovenian food and wine products meaning that it is a great supporter of its Professional members all the while enjoying their creative gastronomy showing off these products. That there will now be the opportunity to give this passion an international audience is wonderful.
