Highlights from WSET Wine Education Week

The SOMM Journal’s Global Wine Editor, Deborah Parker Wong, DWSET
(’09), recently hosted three professional mixers marking the 50th anniversary of the London-based Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET).

Parker Wong teamed up with three Sonoma wineries—Balletto
, Sangiacomo Wines, and McEvoy Ranch—in welcoming WSET
alumni and students as well as members of the trade to taste and network
during Wine Education Week, held September 9–15. Three lucky attendees were awarded access to a Level 2 online certification course.

The world’s largest wine educator, WSET has more than 700 approved
program providers that deliver its wine, spirits, and saké certification programs in 70 countries and 15 languages.

Parker Wong offers both instructor-led and online Level 2 and Level 3 certification courses and specializes in bringing WSET training to winery staff on site.
