Hi, I'm Yvonne, your WSET level 3 Course educator

Yvonne is an experienced wine – and also spirits – professional with a wealth of knowledge under her belt.
The urge to go someplace else to taste and research guided her adventures in the wine world, and she is keen to share her wine stories with her students. 
Yvonne holds the prestigious title of Weinakademiker by the Austrian Wine Academy and WSET Diploma, the highest certification awarded by the Wine and Spirit Education Trust. She passed WSET Advanced Level 3 in 2013 with ‘Distinction’.
In 2020 she became a Certified WSET Wine Educator, apart from being a Certified Madeira Wine Educator and a Barolo & Barbaresco Wine Educator. Alongside teaching at Eleanor Wine Academy, she is a wine and travel writer. Moreover, she judges actively in various international wine and spirit competitions. And also for wine magazines.
She travelled to over 35 countries and has visited winemakers all over Europe, in the USA and South America, besides making her own Riesling wine in Kremstal, Austria. So, I guess you can call her a one-time vigneronne too.
