Highly regarded as one of the world’s top sommeliers and in recognition of his skills, knowledge and expertise; Christopher was selected by the UK Sommelier Association to represent the United Kingdom in 2010 for AIS’s global annual 'Best Sommelier in the World Competition’, held in the Dominican Republic. Though missing out on the grand prize by the finest of margins, this competition formed the basis of a long and enduring relationship between Drinkonomics Productions and the UK Sommelier Association; as Cooper is now a regular lead judge for the annual 'UK Best Sommelier Competition’. The opportunity to inspire, educate and ‘give back’ to the next generation was too great an opportunity to pass up as Drinkonomics Productions continues to forge a long term partnership with the UK Sommelier Association by also providing exciting and engaging education, as a lecturer at diploma level for AIS’s internationally renowned ‘Certified Sommelier Course’. Showcasing his natural passion and talent for teaching, Cooper specialises in a wide variety of topics such as specific wine regions, oenology, food and wine matching, beers and spirits, drinks service and much more.
