TESTIMONIES

Here are the opinions of some of our students:

Adrián Moreno
Wine Blogger Here We Wine

After having passed the pre-exam rush, anxiety and stress, I wanted to thank you: Regardless the final result, (Pass or Fail!) it has been a very nice experience. The leap from WSET 2 to 3 is amazing and the acquired knowledge is super valuable. I have finished the course with an incredible ammount of learning. The classes and your help have been excellent.

From my point of view, the most valuable thing has been to connect climates and wine styles. It has helped me a lot to recognize areas that I thought were difficult to understand.

Isabel Gutiérrez
Directora Spanish Terroirs

“Elisa, Yolanda, Nygil,

I just wanted to thank you for all your care, your efforts and patience. 2018 will remain memorable for me due to the incredible and enriching experience of passing the WSET Level 2, and as for Level 3… We’ll see what will come out of today’s exam. Regardless of the result, I have enjoyed it a lot. I’m sure that you hear this very often, but you are a marvelous team whose teaching style is both enjoyable and yet also manages to make complex subjects much more approachable. You make it seem “logical” and almost “easy”, which is so important for our motivation and which helps us improve in every class.

Thank you very much for everything and hopefully 2019 will bring you lots of joy to toast to!”

“Once again, I would like to thank Elisa, Nygil and Lynne for your professionality and hard work. I loved the course, it’s one of the best experiences that I’ve ever had. It’s absolutely recommendable for anyone who wants to and/or needs to know more about oenology, viticulture, tasting techniques, wine grapes, producing regions, etc. It is a bit (really a lot) of everything which comprises the world of wine, explained from a perspective of why things are the way they are. And you end up understanding why the most famous wines come from the best regions, vineyards and wineries, and why this is not a coincidence.”

Francisca Prieto
Foreign Trade Specialist & KAM

“Elisa, I want to thank you for your patience and care throughout the teaching of this course. I’m not sure if the course was special because of how much I like the subject, or because of the care given by the whole The Wine Studio team while teaching it. I enjoyed the classes so much that it was a shame when they came to an end. They not only teach you about the places but take you there as well.”

Silvia Hübner
Export Area Manager. Williams & Humbert
"Just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU to you all for your patience and time throughout the last weeks. You did a great job. Now let's see how we students did .... - ha ha .  Honestly, I've very much enjoyed this course - perfectly organised and wonderful and professional teachers. Fingers crossed for the results!
I hope next time I'll see you in jerez, rather than in Madrid, and with a glass of sherry from the butt... Always welcome!"

"A totally recommendable experience for wine lovers and an essential course for any professional in the sector. The best thing I’ve done in recent years given the topics covered, the course management and WSET certification. Not to mention the wines that I’ve been given the opportunity to taste! Thanks to Elisa for her dedication and professionalism, it has been a luxury."

"The course was practical, enjoyable and yet rigorous. And of course we covered the goals set by the WSET for this level. More than advisable."

Manuel del Rincón

"From my experience, for those who want to obtain both a wider and yet deeper level of knowledge about the wine world, the WSET Level 2 course has all the features to achieve this goal. Definitely a wise choice."

Anna Espelt
Directora Espelt Viticultors. D.O. Empordá

"Elisa makes difficult seem easy. Her help has been key to clarifying our winery's philosophy and turn it into a concept that is easy to understand for all. Her knowledge of the wine world from the cellar to the final customer, and especially her global vision have helped us create the foundations we needed to be able to move forward. And we had fun along the way!"

Sandra Cabezas

"As Head of Training of the Codorniu Group, I contacted Elisa Errea to see if she could help us with the design of the winemaking training program for our staff. In Elisa I have found a practical, accessible and yet very professional vision on which to focus our needs. Her adaptability to our background, her incredible knowledge of the wine world and her excellent training skills have turned our training program into a success. I am convinced that the collaboration with The Wine Studio is one of the keys to the upgrading of the oenological knowledge of the Codorniu team."

"For me, the WSET LEVEL 3 has allowed me to advance my tasting techniques and gain knowledge of the wine world at an international level, since they offer a series of guidelines and a method to more easily understand a very vast world by simplifying it, and giving us a general outlining to help us understand it, delving into subjects such as soil types and and climate. All this with the help of Elisa Errea, the director of The Wine Studio and a didactic, entertaining and dynamic trainer. Without a doubt I would recommend the course to anyone, professional or amateur."

María Díez Nepomuceno
Directora Comunicación Interprofesional del Vino de España

"One of the best decisions for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of the wine world once and for all. After searching through the numerous wine courses that exist on the market, I found Elisa Errea's project. What luck! First of all, due to getting to know Elisa, an entrepreneur who is professional and passionate about what she does, and who manages to convey that enthusiasm in her classes. Second of all, because in just a short time, The Wine Studio has become a reference in the sector. Her courses are enjoyable, fun, and above all very productive, because they combine theory and practice. Students who are both wine professionals and consumers obtain a greater amount of confidence, and best of all, it encourages them to continue to explore further in this wonderful sector. Cheers and many successes to come."

Alfonso Janeiro
Director del Departamento de Vinos. ICEX

"Participating in the Level 2 and 3 WSET courses at The Wine Studio with Elisa Errea represented a major transition in my professional career, and resulted in great personal satisfaction from sharing a few intense months with an extraordinary person and teacher, as well as magnificent classmates. Both courses provided me with a much broader vision of the wine sector, and allowed me to evaluate our excellent wines in a more professional way, and compare them to examples from other wine-producing countries, as well as understand the different aspects involved in producing an excellent wine. The course should be mandatory for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of this very interesting sector."

Keke Raggio
El Invinista

"I WON’T FAIL TO KEEP THE PROMISES I MAKE... And that is how I would like to begin, because this is an open letter to all of you who want to start preparing for the world’s most demanding wine qualification: the WSET. Elisa Errea assured me that I would pass Level 3... and so it happened! I passed! Few people know to transmit ideas as clear as she does. Elisa is a great communicator, and will show you the correct path in an easy and efficient way. Without a doubt, it was definitely a wise decision to choose her company "The Wine Studio". Now I’m preparing for the final assault on the WSET Diploma and I'm still in contact with Elisa because she is a ray of knowledge. THANK YOU, THANK YOU SO MUCH... YOU'RE THE BEST."

Melissa Gardner
CEO de Melissa Gardner Wines

"Dear Elisa: I'm so happy to see my WSET LEVEL 3 results. I couldn't have done it without your guidance, your good teaching and your clear and specific information. I've taken instruction from others and believe me, the qualities I list above are not found in every WSET class everywhere. THANK YOU!"

Diego Infantes
Comercial

"I believe that the WSET is beyond recommendable for all amateurs or professionals of the sector as it is the most demanding wine qualification at a global level. The Wine Studio is the perfect place for the course, both due to the school’s location and to the teaching of Elisa Errea, a great professional and an excellent communicator."

Maxi Bustamante
Departamento de Trade Marketing of González Byass

"I’m delighted to have completed the WSET 2 with Elisa, she knows how to communicate and excite you with her knowledge. Super recommendable, although the WSET LEVEL 2 makes you yearn for more… Now hoping to do the WSET 3!"

Martim Amaral

Profesional de la Banca de Inversión

"Amazing experience, a world journey into wine knowledge! A special thanks to Elisa who with grace dedication and endless patience guided us through Level 3 and turned it into a very enjoyable and enriching experience! I found the theory well-structured and rigorous, providing a balanced and complete understanding of the whole wine life cycle. And the tastings felt like exciting travels around the world, from the windy slopes of Rhône, to the frozen vines of Germany to the foggy valleys of California. This systematical approach applied to such a great diversity of wine styles - from Heaven on Earth moment tasting Aussie Cab from Coonawarra, to the purgatory of Monsieur Beaujolais Nouveau to Dante's Inferno of Argentinian Torrontes - all supported by Elisa's objectivity and guidance produced a valuable and interesting overall experience. This is a must do for wine lovers interested in furthering their knowledge into a more serious level.”
