This weekend I was glad to receive my CSW credentials from the Society of Wine Educators

After several months of study I went to the test with less confidence than initially expected but with high hopes. The material isĀ comprehensive andĀ full of details. The last days before the exam were nerve racking. Fortunately I managed to pass with an 85/100. I’m already tinkering with the idea of continuing to the next level.

The Certified Specialist of Wine (CSW) certification recognizes a high standard of academic wine knowledge and the mastery of key elements within the worlds of wine and vine.
