Hi, I'm Patricia, your wset level 1 - level 3 educator

Patricia started working with wine in 2004, exploring the diversity of the trade before ending up as a wine expert in the auction business. “Spending time doing what you love is the best investment you can think of and a great way to gain knowledge about this interesting topic.” Patricia successfully got her degree of ‘Vinoloog’ in 2010, followed by the WSET Advanced Level 3 and since 2021 DipWSET.“Wine is such a fascinating product as it has the ability to connect people while unravelling history of geology, family traditions, innovations and if you’re lucky experience the art of refinement and complexity created by the maker. I’m looking forward to sharing my knowledge with you and to creating an open setting to learn, connect and most of all, enjoy your wine course.”
