Liberty Wines shortlisted for WSET Educator of the Year

Following on from our IWC Educator of the Year award last year, we are delighted to have been shortlisted for the WSET Educator of Year Award 2016.

At a time when increasing numbers of customers are seeing the benefits of training their staff to be confident and knowledgeable in the wines that they are selling, we are thrilled to be recognised for our continued investment in education by the leading awarding body.

Liberty Wines has a significant number of WSET Certified Educators in-house and currently offers WSET Level 1 and Level 2 to our customers, achieving results that are well above the global average. Our passion for wine education extends to our own staff - 85% of which hold a WSET qualification and 25% the WSET Level 4 Diploma.

We also complement our WSET courses with our own Liberty Wines Academy courses, which are held across the UK during the year. Aimed at front line staff, they offer different modules in tasting, service, sales, wine list navigation, and food and wine pairing.

If you are interested in attending a course and are a current customer, please contact your Liberty Wines sales representative.
