ASI is the International Sommelier Association and they have developed guidelines, more known as grids, to be used in all international sommelier competitions. These guidelines may be good to look at to get a sense of the level of international competitions, they are however at a much higher level than what will be expected in the Swesomm Junior Challenge.
