    There is no comparable program that gives you such a depth of knowledge on Spanish wines as the Spanish Wine Scholar.
    Jonelle Gingrich, SWS, Wine Enthusiast
    Other certifications: WSET Level 3, FWS

    Congratulations to Jonelle Gingrich, SWS, for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!

    About Jonelle:

    I am a wine enthusiast! Someday maybe I can enter the business side of the wine world. My husband and I enjoy travel to various wine regions all over the world. Some of our favorites have been in Europe.

    When I moved to the UK 4 years ago, a friend informed me about “wine certification courses” and I completed WSET level 3. After that, I felt I needed more background on old world wines before jumping into the diploma – a niche WSG fulfills beautifully with their baseline French, Spanish and Italian wine courses.

    Now I am a current diploma student, and I can say with 100% certainty that there is no comparable program that gives you such a depth of knowledge on Spanish wines as the Spanish Wine Scholar. I feel confident I can handle anything thrown at me in the Spanish wine world after this program! There is no other program that gives you the volume of information on Sherry, Spanish sparkling wines or the wine laws of Spain. As an additional bonus, my husband and I discovered so many Spanish wines we had never heard of and now are staples in our wine rack. So many old vine gems and truly affordable price points.

    WSG thanks the following organizations for their support:
