Credibility and Expertise
Karen is a wine enthusiast with extensive knowledge in the vast world of wine, most recently completing her WSET Diploma. She shared her journey:
Several years ago, long before I worked in the industry, I started taking WSET courses out of curiosity and it was then that I quickly realized how fascinating the world of wine really was. Once I passed WSET Level 3 Award in Wines, I just knew I couldn’t end my learning journey there as it was only beginning. Now as the owner of In Vino Veritas, a wine and spirits import agency, the WSET Diploma has given me both the credibility and expertise needed, allowing me to confidently navigate the many facets of the industry.
