Congratulations to Alison Scofield, SWS, for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
I am a wine enthusiast loving learning about wine and all things related. I work full time outside of wine and am a wife and mother, so I really appreciate the Wine Scholar Guild online courses and the accessibility I have from anywhere. I would love to eventually teach some wine classes in my community, so I am trying to soak up as much wine knowledge as possible to really fuel my passion.
SWS is my second course through the Wine Scholar Guild, the first having been FWS. I am also WSET level 2 certified. I felt like Spain was overlooked in more of the general wine programs, even though there is so much quality and value in Spanish wine! I was very excited to learn more about Spain and Spanish wine in depth through the SWS program to really bolster this region in my wine education knowledge bank. I am currently enrolled in IWS, starting with Section 2 first, through the Wine Scholar Guild instructor‐led online format. I know that the SWS program has given me a great base on which to build more wine knowledge through other regions in the world.
I have such a better appreciation for Spanish wines after having completed SWS! There’s always more to learn, but I feel more confident in discussing, appreciating, and choosing Spanish wines after taking the SWS course. I can’t thank the Wine Scholar Guild enough for offering these
courses, along with all the quality materials, webinars, and study tools to help set students up for success.
