Kelly's latest wine certification results are in!

Sorry for not posting last week, but I took a much needed vacation in Virginia Beach, where we enjoyed lots of warm and sunny days on the beach...

While I was there, the results of my WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust) Advanced Certificate in Wine and Spirits exam finally came back from London. I received a score of Pass with Distinction in both the written portion and the blind tasting portion of the test.

The next step is the Diploma program, which is a two-year, rigorous program that involves a lot of self-study, followed by the Master of Wine program.
