Ep. 66. / How To Nail The WSET L4 Diploma? With Jorge Nunes, The Best Diploma Student of 2021
Listen now
In this episode you can hear my conversation with Jorge Nunes, who had become the most successful WSET Diploma graduate (winner of the Vintners' Cup) in the 2021 calendar year. As a diploma student myself, I wanted to pick Jorge’s brain about how he got to achieve this honourable title. Most helpful techniques, tasting tips, surprising challenges and the power of motivation are all parts of this episode. Other than that, Jorge is currently working as the Asia Pacific Market Manager at great Symington Family Estates in Singapur, so you can also hear his perspective about the current state of the Asian and sweet wine market in the beginning of our conversation. I’ve learned a lot from Jorge during this hour-long talk and I hope you’ll do the same as well. Please get in contact if you have any questions or comments about the episode.
