By background, I am a Chartered Professional Accountant and during the pandemic discovered my interest in the beverage alcohol industry, and more specifically the wine industry. I decided to pursue WSET Level 2 Award in Wines to expand on my knowledge and understanding of the wine production processes, grape varietals and to become more confident in purchasing, tasting and pairing wines with food.
Professionally, I work for the LCBO and now have a better understanding of the products that we have available for consumers, as well as an appreciation for the products themselves. Personally, I am more confident in purchasing and recommending wines to family and friends!
By participating in the tastings in class, you will be able to effectively calibrate your palate. It may seem overwhelming or intimidating at first, but it is a lot of fun. Also, studying for something that you are passionate about makes “studying” so much easier!
