    Audrey Herd-Smith, IWS
    The IWS programs are very complete and offer an amazing level of education that goes beyond the basics and is very detailed.
    Audrey Herd-Smith, IWS, Sales Manager, Manhattan NY, Vineyard Brands
    Other certifications: WSET Level 3

    Congratulations to Audrey Herd-Smith, IWS, for passing the Italian Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Audrey:

    I have worked for Vineyard Brands a wine importer since 1992 to 2007 and then again since 2015 in New York.  I also worked as an Antinori Wine Specialist for Ste Michelle Wine Estates from 2007 to 2015. I have been in the wine industry since 1988 and of course so much has changed especially with Italian wines.

    I have a level 3 WSET. I really enjoyed the IWS program and have found it incredibly useful with a lot of information and very detailed and I believe the best available currently for Italian wines.

    I would love to enroll in the Burgundy master program.

    The IWS programs are very complete and offer an amazing level of education that goes beyond the basics and is very detailed and I look forward to taking as many as possible as we at Vineyard Brands represent producers from around the world and having an education on all of the regions is pivotal to the success of sales in this industry.
