Elizabeth Tsai, SWS
Congratulations to Elizabeth Tsai, SWS, for passing the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with highest honors!
I started my wine journey as a bartender in 2007. For the longest time, I only knew the common terms and a few names to get by. Thanks to COVID, I suddenly had free time and decided to expand my knowledge and that is how I fell into this rabbit hole. I am a wine enthusiast and I have great passion in understanding the geography, history, viticulture and wine making process. I am definitely looking forward to expanding my interest.
Currently, I am WSET II certified and I had finished my FWS and SWS both with highest honors. SWS is a great way to expand my knowledge not just on wine but also a deep appreciation of this challenging industry. My favorite part of the course is sherry and because of that I took Certified Sherry Wine Specialist as well. My next adventure, no doubt, will be to enroll in IWS.
With the SWS, I’m able to incorporate my knowledge to my bar, not only my wine list but also expand my cocktail creation using sherry as a creative ingredient. I’m also able to share my knowledge with my family, co workers and also my customers. I am also open to any opportunities that come along the way.
