Top Scorers: Courtney Olson

Congratulations to Courtney Olson, sommelier in San Francisco for passing the Champagne Master-Level exam with honors!

 

"The Champagne ML program was outstanding! The professionals that you have teaching are the leaders in their fields. [...]

 

I am a WSET Diploma graduate, Certified Sommelier with the Court of Master Sommeliers, and Certified California Wine Appellation Specialist.

 

Certification is important to establish credibility in a profession that can be viewed as a job where you drink all day. But certification is by no means a prerequisite to being a good sommelier. The Champagne Master-Level program offered me the opportunity to dig deeper into a region and wine style that I am passionate about. It helped to broaden my knowledge, making me better equipped to enhance a guest's experience. Champagne is one of the greatest food companions that has yet to be fully embraced by the public. I want to shout for the rooftops-Drink more Champagne! It’s the perfect dinner guest!’’
