Congratulations Heather Dougherty for passing the Champagne Master-Level examination with highest honors!
Heather is a freelance wine educator and writer in the UK.
Few words from Heather:
''I run wine tastings and events for a wide range of consumers and for the wine trade. I am a member of the Circle of Wine Writers and am the current Chairman of the Association of Wine Educators. Wine is something that turned from a hobby to a profession for me. I’ve been educating people about wine for the last twelve years and feel incredibly lucky to be doing something I love for a living.
I hold the WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits. Champagne has been an abiding interest through numerous visits/study tours to the region over the years, but the Champagne ML programme has taken my knowledge and appreciation to a new level. Last year I was a UK finalist in the European Champagne Ambassador competition and I would love to go one better in the future.''
