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.

Whether or not you are in the wine industry, I think you can abstract some very important soft and hard skills that employers are looking for when hiring candidates. The Diploma Program can be demanding, and it takes a concerted amount of self discipline and time management to stay on track of studying, tasting and coming prepared to class, all while working full-time, or taking care of a family. It shows prospective employers that you are diligent, detail oriented, and able to commit to long-term goals in a short attention span world. I think it’s also beneficial personally, to be able to say to yourself that you stuck to something and saw a challenging goal to completion. It’s an accomplishment that helps build personal confidence, and that can have a real snowball effect on success.
