READY TO LEARN ALL THINGS WINE?
Melanie Webber is a certified wine educator, sommelier, writer and communications expert who helps wine industry professionals achieve their wine certifications and wine lovers deepen their appreciation and understanding of wine. At the core of everything Melanie does is her passion to make it fun to learn how to taste, assess and enjoy wine.
Melanie’s most important wine credential is a love of wine—and everything and everyone that glass of grape juice represents. She has a deep desire to share the joy of wine discovery with a ‘no-snobs-allowed’ approach that her students, tasters, and wine labels appreciate. She also holds the globally-recognized Diploma in Wine and Spirits from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, as well as the French Wine Scholar certification from the French Wine Society. Whether you're just getting started with wine or work in the industry, Melanie is your go-to for expanding your wine knowledge.
The curriculum for WSET’s world class certifications is top notch and rigorous, but Melanie makes the learning accessible, fun and engaging, all while ensuring a depth of understanding. Melanie’s classes are essential learning for anyone who is serious about expanding their wine education as well as for those who love wine, but also want to keep it real.
Melanie Webber's patience, encouragement, humor and dedication combined with her passion and enthusiasm for wine education set her apart as a teacher of the highest caliber. I am immensely grateful to have had the fortune to be one of her students.
