I was inspired by the Level 3 experience. Initially, with the world of wine being so very vast, I was worried I would be overwhelmed. My concerns were quickly dismissed thanks to the knowledgeable instruction, the concise, relevant information supplied in digestible portions. I know how important it is to build confidence in students. This is done through support, respect and encouragement, all of which I experienced throughout my wine education with Fine Vintage. I am one of FV’s biggest fans!

Level 3 has given me the confidence to better assess quality and origin when tasting wine. Being able to deduce so much about a wine through my nose and palate is rewarding and useful when working as an industry professional.

Level Three of the WSET program was certainly challenging but also incredibly engaging and rewarding. I learned so much from this program and am excited to move on to the Diploma level with Fine Vintage next year.
