Hi, I’m Stefanos, your wset 1 & 2 course educator
Born and raised in Thessaloniki in 1987, Stefanos studied
Viticulture in the School of Agriculture (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and is currently a holder of WSET Level 3 Award in Wines. Coming from the homeland of wine , he couldn’t but be specialised in local varieties and his passion for Greek wine is his moving power. After years of working in restaurants and wine bars he became Sales representative in a leading wine trading company in Greece in 2014.
In search of new business prospects he moved to the Netherlands in 201 and he has been working in the local wine industry since then. On 2019 he opened his own wine boutique in the centre of Utrecht . The everyday contact with people asking to learn more about wine intrigued him until he decided to broaden his horizons and orientate towards wine education. Stefanos has joined the Eleanor Wine Academy team and will support teaching the WSET Level 1 and Level 2 in Wines in Rotterdam, Utrecht and the Hague
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.
An extremely interesting and interactive experience done by people who enjoy the art of wine.
I am very satisfied. I took only part to the exam but I find everything likable. I recommend this school!
The teacher has very good teaching skills. 3 hours learning about wines feel like 10 minutes.
Top Class! The course is very interesting and interactive. I recommend!
I applied from Japan, was able to take all coursework online, and when I arrived in Amsterdam was able to go straight into my exam.
Fun, and gives a new perspective on wine.
Well structured, very professional, friendly, felt like I learned a lot.
Broaden my wine knowledge and strengthen my appreciation of wine (and its origin).
Thank you for the great course!!!
Nothing to change, everything is good!
Very well organized and good material.
It was fun and interesting.
Everything has been as good as I expected, I have learned a lot! The teacher, Vittoria is great. I'm looking forward to taking next level 2.
