Results for WSET Diploma Unit 3 were released last week, and I am both pleased and profoundly relieved to report that I passed both sections (theory and tasting).
Unit 3 (the monster) was my last exam, so with this . . . my two and a half year WSET Diploma journey is a wrap.
I’m now officially DipWSET.
What’s next? Champagne, of course! I haven’t thought much beyond that. I’ve had several folks ask if I will go on to Master of Wine. Doubtful. That one seems totally unattainable right now — both in terms of time commitment and cost.
I’m hoping to get back to blogging more consistently, but I’m struggling to find the right (new?) direction. I love wine education, but the market feels pretty saturated with different ways to learn about wine. And I’m reasonably sure the world doesn’t need another wine “influencer” (I’m too selfie-shy for that, anyway).
I’m at a crux. But I’ll figure it out.
For now, I’m working as a wine consultant at Wegmans. At least three years of wine industry experience is a requirement for admission into Master of Wine program, so it’s not totally off the table (just mostly).
