Kim Berdusco

Kim’s wine journey started in the United Kingdom where she lived for 18 years.  While working in the trading room for a large banking organization, Kim started taking WSET courses at the head office in London, UK.  Once immersed in wine studies, she never looked back!  She completed the Diploma with WSET in 2011.  After returning to Canada in 2012, she became a certified sommelier by both the Court of Master Sommeliers and the Canadian Association of Professional Sommeliers.  She is a certified educator with WSET and a director on the Board of the Toronto Winetasters Society.  She does private tastings and events and is the wine representative for the Toronto Newcomers Club.

Kim teaches WSET courses at IWEG.  She also teaches the Spanish Wine Scholar and the Italian Wine Scholar.  

Recognizing Kim’s passion for “all things wine”, she was awarded the “Teacher of the Year” at IWEG in 2017.  Other interests include running, reading and playing bridge.  She is currently a student for the Master of Wine qualification and is enrolled at UC Davis in their Winemaking Certification Program. 

Teaching approach:

I am passionate about teaching wine. I love to have a thorough and extensive discussion in the class where students contribute to the subject material.  I think of myself more as a facilitator of information/education than as a lecturer.  I want students to come away from the class and not just recall material but understand it.
