The Guild of Sommeliers Education Foundation was founded in 2003 by a group of Master Sommeliers and service industry business leaders. At inception, the organization was endowed with a gift of approximately $1,000,000 of old and rare wine to assist in educational opportunities for studying sommeliers.
