Congratulations to Jenni Middlehurst, SWS, for achieving highest honors in the Spanish Wine Scholar exam with the West London Wine School.
In my day job I lead technology transformation programmes in financial services and in evenings and weekends I host wine events, communicate about wine on my social media channel and work with wine brands. I’m keenly studying for wine qualifications alongside my day job, with a big dream of moving from the corporate world and establishing my own small vineyard and making my own wine.
I’m slightly obsessed with wine education and have ridiculous thirst for learning. I’ve recently completed an MSc in Viticulture & Oenology, alongside working towards a WSET diploma. I’ve also completed the French Wine Scholar and Unit 1 of Italian Wine Scholar. I find the WSG courses really supplements my wine knowledge and will help me prepare me for D3 of WSET Diploma. I’m looking forward to completing Unit 2 of Italian Wine Scholar soon!
Wine Scholar Guild brings back the fun in wine education for me as they provide such wonderful immersive courses that embrace wine learning, rather than make it about passing exams. I undertook Spanish Wine Scholar in a break between my degree and diploma and it really helped me gain a better understanding and appreciation of Spanish culture and wine.
