    The WSG qualifications have a level of depth that I love. I did the Study Trips and Master Levels in Champagne and Bordeaux, and I plan to prepare thoroughly and take those exams as well.
    Alejandra Breton, FWS, Director, The Wine Trainer
    Other certifications: WSET Levels 1, 2 & 3

    Congratulations to Alejandra Breton, FWS, for achieving highest honors in the French Wine Scholar exam with The Wine School, Colombia.

    About Alejandra:

    I’m from Uruguay but I live in Paraguay. MBA and Bachelor’s in Social Communication, I worked in marketing for multinational companies. Emigrating challenged me to get out of my comfort zone and helped me find my true passion: wine.

    I started with the WSET Level 1 & 2. Then I took the FWS first edition in Spanish. I must admit that I wasn't prepared for the depth of the course, I underestimated the preparation, I failed the exam.

    I continued my training with the WSET Level 3. Little by little, I began to work in the world of wine. Without realizing it, my passion became a second profession.

    But the FWS was pending… I restarted several times, until I decided to set a date and changed my way of studying, starting from the objectives, using flashcards, maps, etc. Having passed with highest honors is doubly gratifying because I incorporated the knowledge plus overcame the fear of failure.

    In 2021 I became WSET Certified Educator in Wines in the US, being the first person in Paraguay and Uruguay to obtain this qualification. Today, my venture The Wine Trainer is an official provider of WSET certifications, which challenges me even more.

    WSET training is global but the WSG qualifications have a level of depth that I love. I did the Study Trips and Master Levels in Champagne and Bordeaux, and I plan to prepare thoroughly and take those exams as well. In the future, I’d like to incorporate the WSG courses into The Wine Trainer's proposal.

    I still have so much to know, the wine world is infinite. The deeper I go, the less I know. This is just the beginning!
