    The insights gained from the Master-Level course will be invaluable (on the study tour) when it comes to appreciating such an in-depth experience.
    Susan Hutchinson, Wine Enthusiast
    Other certifications: WSET Levels 2 & 3, French Wine Scholar

    Congratulations to Susan Hutchinson for passing the Bourgogne Master Level exam with highest honors!

    About Susan:

    I am a wine enthusiast who fell in love with Pinot Noir after tasting Le Clos Jordanne Le Grand Clos 2009 during the first wine event I ever attended. This inspired me to pursue the study of wine, and I completed WSET levels 2 & 3 (winning Drinks Ontario‘s Jack Aykroyd Memorial Scholarship Award for the 2012 Level 2) through the Independent Wine Education Guild in Toronto.

    A chance encounter with an astonishing bottle of 1961 grand cru Clos Saint Denis inspired me to continue my studies, and I completed the French Wine Scholar course and then the Bourgogne Master-Level through The Wine Scholar Guild.

    I hope to visit Bourgogne soon, and look forward to the quality tour offered by the Wine Scholar Guild; the insights gained from the Master-Level course will be invaluable when it comes to appreciating such an in-depth experience.

    In the meantime, I feel fortunate to live so close to the Niagara wine region where the Burgundy varietials have found a niche in a rare limestone-escarpment terroir comparable to the one in which they evolved.

    WSG thanks the following organizations for their support:
