    Other certifications: WSET Level 3

    Congratualations to Andrés Medrano, for passing the Champagne Master Level program with highest honors!

    About Andrés: 

    Andrés has a background in International Business. During his second life, he has spent more than 10 years in Paris honing his culinary skills & knowledge. Starting in 2008 at the famous FERRANDI, school of culinary arts in Paris, he learned the hard way the fine art of pastry & cuisine, apprenticing in noted Michelin-starred restaurants. Inspired by French cuisine, he then had the opportunity to study alongside European champion chef Olivier Boudot to discover secrets of French bread-making at the international Cordon Bleu school.

    Discovering a more epicurean penchant, he then left to study for the globally recognized Wine & Spirit Education trust (WSET) level 3 qualification & a master of Champagne with the Wine Scholar Guild.

    Now, armed with both the skills of a Sommelier & culinary nous, he is bringing the disciplines together as a food & wine educator in Paris, France with his recently created company www.wetasteparis.com, leading bespoke, fun, relaxed, ‘under the skin of the city’ tours around Paris’ independent delicatessens and vintners. He is passionate about biodynamic farming, fermented food & the history of arguably the finest cuisine in the world.

    He aspires to develop his educational business and to be able to take more travelers to visit the Champagne vineyards for 1 day tours from Paris & launch a fun “natural wine bar tour” this year.

    The Champagne Master Level program provided outstanding insight & accurate details delivered by international Champagne experts paired with a solid book truly written by a passionate educator and the webinars complemented beautifully all the learnings. This diploma has increased his deep appreciation for arguably the best drink in the world.

    Andrés is planning to continue studying with the WSG & obtain the FWS - French Wine Scholar diploma this year & the IWS next year.
