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!

Completing the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines was challenging but also so rewarding! I finally have the confidence I’ve been lacking in the tasting room and I having a solid understanding of wines and spirits that has allowed me to propel my career at the LCBO. Also, I love being able to pass on some of my knowledge to friends and family. The wine industry can be very intimidating to people who aren’t in the industry so it’s great being able to teach others about wine in a digestible way.

Study tips:
Studying for a WSET course takes a lot of autonomy and dedication. Essentially what you get out of the program depends on what you put into it. Don’t let the tastings intimidate you; it’s all about discussion and learning. When it comes to learning the material, do what feels right for you! I personally loved using maps for visuals and I used cue cards to study with.
