Quentin's love of wine was kickstarted by a misspent youth on family holidays in Spain's Valencian Community.
From his first tentative sips of wine, when he was three, he has seen the wines of the region utterly transformed. Join him as he revisits that transformation and see how this rather overlooked wine region is changing and becoming a source of some truly exciting wines!
A miss-spent youth in Spain gave him a love of wine and in his 35 years, and counting, in the wine business Quentin has done pretty much everything. He holds all WSET qualifications up to Diploma and his main focus for the last twenty years has been as a wine educator, wine writer and blogger. This in turn led him to use his love of design to create maps that he could use in his courses and on his blog. Map making for books and presentations grew to become the major part of his work and brought him to our attention.
Quentin joined WSG in the Autumn of 2020, although prior to that he had created the maps for both the Spanish Wine Scholar and the Italian Wine Scholar Prep courses.
He continues to teach and write and is often found judging wines all around the world.
This wine map of Central Mediterranean Coast (Valencia & Murcia) has been designed by Quentin Sadler and Wine Scholar Guild to illustrate the Spanish Wine Scholar™ study & certification program.
