    Provence

    Claire Commaille

    Congratulations to Claire Commaille for passing the Provence Master-Level exam with honors !

    About Claire: 

    "I am both a wine professional passionate about wines for a couple of years. I am V.I.E. (International Intern program for companies operating overseas) managed by Imed. I am sharing my time between different wine producers, one is Vins Breban based in Provence. This was the starting point of my taste for learning more from this exiting region. The other producer is Ackerman based in the Loire Valley. Born and raised in Burgundy, I am afraid being passionate about large table, good food, and wines doesn’t make me a maverick! I worked in a cellar in Burgundy when I was 18 as a summer job and this is when the wine story started.

    I graduated from Montpellier Business School with a Master Degree specialized in International Business of Wine. 2 years after I passed the WSET level 3 and I am planning to enroll for the diploma. I am currently especially interested in the off-piste wines which also offer tremendous value for money. I think Loire is also one of the hidden gem of France. The Master level program is different from the WSET and other programs as it teaches you to get the whole picture of the region with the history, geography and much more. It explains not only what is inside your glass but also why thanks to a broader understanding of the Provence region.

    Socrates was right I guess. The more you learn about wine, the more you realize you know so little about it and the more you want to learn. This is definitely a human lifespan job. The Master level was especially interesting as it underlines all the links between the history of the region, the geography, and the current wine making."

    Brendan Feeney

    Congratulations to Brendan Feeney for passing the Provence Master-Level exam with highest honors!

    About Brendan:

    ''My interest in French food and wine was initiated by the exploits of the infamous Keith Floyd. Opportunities to enjoy at first hand the very distinct and much varied regional fare and libations were afforded by subsequent periods of study in Paris, careers in hospitality, sales, education and interpreting (Dutch, English, French and German) and many a summer spent traveling throughout France.

    As a way of adding more specific, in-depth industry knowledge to that experience and to the WSET certification and seminars taken with IWEG in Toronto, enrollment in the French Wine Scholar course was ideal.

    The Provence Master Level Program, with its comprehensive content and opportunity to learn from such an expert as Elizabeth Gabay, has allowed me to develop a sound understanding and acute appreciation of the complexity of all that is Provencal. Upon completion of the Rhone Master Level course, I am looking forward to embarking on an exciting career in the industry, completing the transition from wine enthusiast to wine professional.''
