To all of you who knew I was undertaking the WSET Diploma in Wine (a journey that takes 2 to 3 years), I am humbled to announce that I received notice I had passed the final leg in my journey, D3 Still Wines of the World (also fondly know as ‘the Beast’). I can now proudly use the post nominal title of DipWSET.
I want to thank all of you that were kind enough to support me and to ask how things were going as I proceeded on this path as you all know how passionate I am about this. I also want to call out those of you who patiently listened as I stressed over giving the WSET what they wanted to hear in the weeks following the exam (it takes three months to receive results).
While this is amazing and I am very happy, at the end of the day, the best part is all the folks around the world that I met (generally on zoom due to Covid) and studied with. The material required to be studied is extensive but the plum was all the insights I garnered from all of you around the globe. My view of the wine industry, originally seen by me in the shadow of the Napa Valley, has forever been expanded, and the friendships I have gained are priceless!
Thank you all…
