Wine Scholar Guild Launches WSG Studio

Wine education, your way.

We are thrilled to announce the arrival of WSG Studio, a digital hub featuring an extensive collection of live and on-demand wine education content! With WSG Studio, wine students of all levels can curate their own independent learning paths to complement their studies, or simply connect to stay current in their knowledge.

Building on our rich library of recorded member events, WSG Studio features up-to-date perspectives on wine history, wine trends and regulations, regions, climate, soils, viticultural and vinicultural practices, and more. All guest presenters and panelists are experts in their fields including Masters of Wine, Master Sommeliers, winemakers, renowned wine journalists, and more. Hosts include Mary Kirk, WSG's Member Manager and Andrew Jefford, award-winning and renowned wine writer, among other guest hosts. 

We chatted with Mary about how WSG Studio came about. Here's what she had to say:
