Congratulations to Scott Manard!

We are very pleased to announce that Bonita Bay Club’s Scott Manard, Food and Beverage Manager, has been awarded Certified Sommelier designation by the Court of Master Sommeliers.

The corresponding examination Scott successfully passed is composed of a deductive assessment of four wines tasted “blind”, written theory exam and an intensive beverage service practical performed on multiple esteemed Master Sommeliers (there are only 249 individuals with this distinction in the world).

This process was recently refined to make more challenging due to the surging interest in careers within the wine and beverage industry. Earning the title of Certified Sommelier demonstrates skill in salesmanship, the business of beverage program management, tasting ability, and theoretical understanding of the world of wine and beverage.

Most impressive was Scott’s ability to balance his studies with the many demands of peak-season activity. Please join us in congratulating Scott when you see him around the Club.

Congratulations SFPGA BBC Team!
