    About Adrian

    I started my wine journey in 2006 and since then I realized now that I love wine, I want to know more about wine and understand all about wines and vines.

    As for wine courses I did a few with Wine & Spirit Education Trust (Level 3 in Wine) Jan. 2021 passed with merit,  Wine & Spirit Education Trust (Level 2 in Wine) passed with Distinction Nov. 2019, Romania “WineTaste” - Sommelier School by Sergiu Nedelea June 2019, Pernod Ricard Wine & Spirit College (Master Class Certificate), New Zealand May 2007, Wine School “Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts”, US  Sommelier Association May 2007… Jan 2021 Highest Honors for FWS and currently student of Spanish Wine Scholar.

    I consider the Wine Scholar Guild a fantastic tool to continue my wine education journey, and you are doing a fantastic job in every way.  Of course, it can help with moving on in career but it is difficult at this time of with the pandemic situation and I hope for future opportunities.
