  4. The Colour of Wine

    The vintage chart and harvest reports provided by the Wine Scholar Guild give you the ranking for major Italian wine regions and vintages from 2010 to today. Tom Hyland, wine writer, photographer, and publisher of Italian Wine Report, has compiled this information and written the vintage charts starting with the 2010 vintage. The vintage charts were last updated on August 3, 2022 in order to include the 2020 vintage.

  6. Scratch More Than Just the Surface

    The most important thing I have learned so far is that I have only scratched the surface of this incredibly gigantic, ancient, and diverse world of wine. Because of this foundation of information, I’ve learned that the only way to move is forward from here.

  8. Don’t Wait

    I chose to pursue the Diploma to further expand my knowledge in the world of wine while also learning practices to increase both wine and grape quality. The Diploma fulfills both of these goals by building on the strong foundation the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines provided and is internationally recognized for its quality. As a winemaker and vineyard manager who had never studied either in post secondary, I felt as though the Diploma would lend a more scholarly aspect to my hands on knowledge.

  9. Utilize Your Skills

    After I had my son in 2016, I decided I wanted to pursue wine education. I had worked in the hospitality industry for 20 years and although I love the hustle and bustle of dining room floor, that life just didn’t suit me anymore.

  10. Just Sign Up

    I had worked at a winery in the Niagara region a few years back and now I am working in a totally different field as a Financial Advisor. However, the memories I had with all my coworkers, the beautiful wine region and the working experience as a Wine Consultant and Hospitality Assistant Manager back then still brings me lots of joy and made me pursue the WSET Diploma.
