    Daniel Schlachet, SWS

    Daniel Schlachet, SWS
    The SWS has made me a better teacher allowing me to give my students a more thorough understanding of the world of wine.
    Daniel Schlachet, SWS, General manager at Bitto Bistro wine bar and instructor for Wine Education Institute, Colorado
    Other certifications: WSET Levels 1, 2 & 3, Italian Wine Scholar with Highest Honors

    Congratulations to Daniel Schlachet, SWS for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Daniel:

    My background is in culinary with over ten years working in kitchens. I discovered wine after working for Bitto bistro as their kitchen manager and started taking WSET courses. I quickly fell down the rabbit hole of wine and developed a new found passion for learning and teaching about wine. I am now the GM at Bitto Bistro and an instructor for the Wine Education Institute.

    I have successfully completed WSET Level 1-3, achieving merit on my level 3. I have also successfully completed IWS and SWS through Wine Scholar Guild achieving highest honors on both.
    I am going to be testing for WSET level 2 in Spirits shortly and plan to continue my education, most likely taking the FWS in the near future.

    The SWS has given me a deeper appreciation for Spanish wine and their culture overall. The amount of grapes and styles being produced at a high quality level is amazing and inspires me to share them with my students. The SWS has made me a better teacher allowing me to give my students a more thorough understanding of the world of wine. Overall it drives me to continue learning and searching for the rare gems in wine so I can then share them!

    WSG thanks the following organizations for their support:
