Meet Pier-Alexis Soulière: Best Sommelier of Quebec 2017

Pier-Alexis Soulière has dedicated the past 10 years of his career providing world class wine service and enhancing guests experience in some of the most demanding environments. The journey started in Montréal and brought him to excel on 3 different continents; from London, to Sydney, to New-York City and now California. He has been working in some of the most prestigious Michelin stars establishments, such as Dinner by Heston Blumentha (2-star Michelin), The Modern (2-star Michelin), and Manresa (3-star Michelin).

In 2014, he won the World Young Sommelier of the Year competition held in Copenhagen. A competition where participants from 15 different countries had to present their skills and “savoir faire” under highly competitive, intense and grueling testing conditions.

In 2016, he became one of the very few to have earned the Master Sommelier title before 30 years old. A title held by a total of 5 individuals in Canada, only 2 in the province of Québec and 236 worldwide.

In 2017, Pier-Alexis was named Québec’s Best Sommelier by the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers. He will represent the province of Québec at the Canada’s Best Sommelier competition held in Vancouver, from September 3rd to 5th.
