In each academic year, the student achieving the highest overall mark across all units of the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines is awarded the Vintners' Cup. This year the recipient from the 2019/20 graduating class was Mary Wright DipWSET. Mary completed her WSET Diploma at WSET School London; she works for Liberty Wines as Sogrape Iberia Estates Ambassador.
The moment that begins every student on their wine journey is different. For Mary, it was a year abroad in Italy and tasting Lambrusco for the first time! We asked her what motivated her to study and what advice she would give to anyone embarking on the WSET Diploma.
Sponsored by The Worshipful Company of Vintners, the prizewinner is given a bursary to visit the wine-producing region of their choice and their name is added to the Vintners' Cup trophy.
