How I’m prepping for Certified Sommelier-CMS 2

The biggest goal I have set for myself this year is to take and pass Court of Master Sommelier level 2, which will make me an official certified Sommelier! I took CMS level 1 about 1.5 years ago and it was tough but very rewarding! I’ve also taken WSET courses 1 and 2 within the last year. I’m excited to get back into studying! Here’s how I’m prepping! 






 -tracing paper to draw maps

-notecards for flash cards- also Vino Cards (available on Amazon


Wine Bible by: Karen MacNeil 

Wine Folly: Madeline Puckette 

Windows on the World Complete Wine Course by: Kevin Zraly  

The World Atlas of Wine by: Jancis Robinson and Hugh Johnson  


And of course lots and lots of wine! I plan to open every bottle with the proper method and go through the grid with every wine. I plan to practice blind tasting as much as possible!! 

Comment below any other study tips you have!! Cheers!!
