The competition is, “of great difficulty, which requires knowledge and also a lot of temperance and serenity”. The participants face several tests, before a jury formed by a score of people. The first one is of theoretical content, with questions about types of wines, liquors, cheeses, cigars, even gourmet food, such as ham or pâté, both national and international. Then they have to carry out a blind tasting of white and red wine. The three finalists pass other tests, such as new tastings, distillate tests, tasting, a language test, a uniform test, an erroneous letter table (a wine list with vintages or bad names that have to be discovered) and finally a decanting test.
