Congratulations to Ednajar Tavares Macedo Filho, SWS, for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
Definitely I am a wine enthusiast. It all started about 12 years ago when I decided to read and try to understand about what I was drinking. The books succeeded one another and every book made suggestions about new literature, each one greater and becoming more and more enlightening. It is no surprise that drinking soon became tasting. A whole world has opened in front of me. The knowledge has the ability to transform and enhance what a glass of wine can offer to you. It is not anymore just about the challenge of discriminating the bouquet, the balance, the elegance, the persistence and evolution of a wine. It is now about history, tradition and above all hard working from the vineyard to the cellar. I am really glad of having the opportunity to discover and explore this whole new world!
I passed the WSET Level 3 Award in Wine in 2017. In 2018 I passed the Intermediate Level in Formación del Vino, del Brandy y del Vinagre de Jerez y de la Manzanilla. Last year (2019) I was granted the certification of French Wine Scholar and I have just finished the Spanish Wine Scholar. I must say that it is a never ending journey. A really good one! By now I am in the middle of Italian Wine Scholar, it is awesome!
The Spanish Wine Scholar transforms your knowledge about Spanish wine and gives you a solid and special attention to the most important and detailed aspects that a wine lover and those who will apply to other certifications need so much.
