Congratulations Chad and Stephanie on a Job Well Done!
We are incredibly proud to report that two of our Villagers, Chad Ducharme and Stephanie Sanchez recently passed the WSET Level 1 exam with a score of 100%! Congratulations on a job well done! They are now both part of an exclusive group of wine professionals certified through London’s Wine & Spirits Educational Trust (WSET) and the Napa Valley Wine Academy, which was recently awarded the prestigious Riedel Trophy for the WSET Global Educator of the Year. How incredible that the first Villagers we sent to the training not only passed – they did so with flying colors! Congratulations again Stephanie & Chad!
Europa Village Proprietor, Dan Stephenson said “This is such a great accomplishment. Being a sommelier is not only great for Europa Village but equally as important for you as individuals on how much more fun you will have for the rest of your lives having gained this knowledge. I look forward to having a glass of wine with you both so you can tell me all about the wines we are tasting. I love people who continue to challenge themselves and learn new things. Congratulations on aspiring to do more.”
