I fell in love with the wine world as soon as I stepped foot on a local vineyard in the summer of 2015. Up until that point, wine — as in bottled, labeled, ready to serve — had been something, almost more of an object, that I was familiar with showing up in cases at the LCBO I had been working at for 3 years. But stepping onto a vineyard and experiencing the vines, grape bunches, staff and machinery at work, sun shining on different plots of land… it all hit me that wine has a huge story to tell, which begins many years before I even got the opportunity  to enjoy what I pour.

I began taking WSET classes through IWEG in 2016, with Level 2 and then completing Level 3 in 2017. By this point, I had already completed an International BA in Trilingual Studies, but I was hungry for more knowledge in this fascinating field. Wine is one of those incredibly interesting yet frustrating subjects in which the more one learns, the less one feels they may know (at least in my experience). But the Diploma in wine has been incredibly eye opening and my curiosity is getting more and more sated as the studies continue.

I have definitely been using all my free time (including breaks at work) to read/study. Working full-time while taking classes is a first for me, which I definitely found challenging at the beginning. I am getting into more of a routine these days, & talking to customers about wines has been extremely helpful for me to retain the information I am learning. I find myself motivated to teach others everything I have just discovered myself.
