  3. Propel Your Career

    I’ve been working in the beverage alcohol industry for about eight years now and I came into it with very basic level knowledge – I knew I preferred red wine over white but that was basically the extent. I was intrigued by how much there was to know about wine and spirits, so I made it my mission to learn all I could. All of my colleagues recommended the WSET so I went for it!

  5. The Honesty of Wine

    The world of wine is so dynamic. You can learn about geography, chemistry, history, culture and gastronomy. There are endless rabbit holes of discovery with wine. It is such a diverse field of study, but at the end of the day, it’s still a food product. It’s something to consume and share with loved ones. There’s a tangible honesty to wine, and I think that really drew me in to study it and pursue it professionally.
