    I found the Master Level program of Bourgogne to be one of the most invaluable courses I’ve taken to date.

    Congratulations to Celeste Bailey for passing the Bourgogne Master Level exam with highest honors!

    About Celeste:

    I am both an enthusiast and professional.  I’ve been an enthusiast since I was old enough to legally enjoy wine and have always wanted to become more wine-knowledgeable, but did not have the time due to my legal career and family obligations.  Once I retired early from being a lawyer, I signed up to take a WSET class at the Florida Wine Academy and passed Levels 2 and 3 with distinction.  Shortly thereafter, the founder of the Florida Wine Academy asked me to join her team to help with teaching WSET wine courses.  I then took the FWS program at the Florida Wine Academy and passed with Highest Honors, so I now teach these sessions as well.

    Earlier this year I took the Rhone Master-Level program and passed with Highest Honors. The FWS provides an incredible base of knowledge about all French regions.  The Master Level programs really provide detailed information about a particular region that simply cannot be learned without the thorough coverage in both the reading materials and corresponding webinars. I found the Master program of Bourgogne to be one of the most invaluable courses I’ve taken to date.  Most wine lovers acknowledge that the Bourgogne region is difficult, but after taking the class and the exam, I believe that I have a high level of understanding of the complexities within Bourgogne.  So much so, that I’ve already taught a Bourgogne Masterclass at the Florida Wine Academy since passing my exam!

    I am currently enrolled in the Spanish Wine Scholar Educator program and plan on completing this by April 2020.  I look forward to becoming a Spanish wine scholar and to educate others to become the same.  In addition, I understand that there will be a Master-Level Piedmont program offered soon.  I’m most interested in taking this course as well.

    As stated above, I am now able to teach Master Classes of Bourgogne and Rhone at the Florida Wine Academy. I’m also enrolled to go on the WSG Bourgogne trip this May to put what I learned to work.  Finally, the Master Level classes really do teach you how to become an informed consumer and/or collector of wine.  I collect wines and having the advanced knowledge of a region and its producers really makes a difference when purchasing wines.
