Managing a Successful Restaurant Beverage Program

Seminar Description

Every sommelier and beverage manager knows that having the dream job of tasting wine all day is a total myth.There are myriad of responsibilities; high volume of communication with vendors, profit control strategies, menu design and development, staff training and marketing to name a few. This seminar will get a few of the nation's top beverage program managers for a panel discussion covering their recommended tools and strategies of how to juggle all the work, operate a profitable program, and convince people we really are just drinking wine all day.
