"Vanwege mijn horecawerk wilde ik meer weten over wijn, nog beter leren proeven. Ik heb voor WSET gekozen omdat het internationaal erkend wordt en meer "doorgroei"mogelijkheden heeft. Dankzij deze cursus ben ik wijn nog veel meer gaan waarderen. Intussen spaar ik verder om level 3 van WSET te gaan volgen, met 1130 euro geen lichte beslissing. Maar ik houd zoveel van wijnen en heb zoveel plezier gehad van mijn level 2 cursus, dat ik zeker weet hiermee verder te willen."
