    I found the Champagne ML program was perfect for the person looking for a more in-depth look at a region. The content is concise and the choice of presenters really makes the difference.

    Congrats to Andrew MacLeod for passing the Champagne Master-Level with the highest honors!

    About Andrew:

    ''I’m one of those sommeliers that have taken flight from the frenetic pace of restaurant life, now enjoying the relative calm of wine retail. Time to chat with customers is a fleeting luxury during a busy dinner service, so the slower pace of a wine boutique is a refreshing change. 

    My “aha!” moment came about working as the sommelier for The Savoy in London. Just one sip of the beautiful elixir that is mature champagne and everything came into focus. I’ll very happily drink a bottle of Beaujolais Cru, but opening a bottle of well-aged champagne is something closer to a spiritual experience. You could say that ever since I have been spreading the gospel of the bubbly.

    This was my first course taken with the Wine Scholar Guild. I hold a sommelier diploma with ISG, and Level 3 with WSET. I found the ML program was perfect for the person looking for a more in-depth look at a region. The content is concise and the choice of presenters really makes the difference.

    I think that the ML programs offer a sturdy foundation for understanding a region. You can always go on to learn the more esoteric things, but what you learn taking this course is something that you can always go back to.''
