Coravin joins as the 44th partner amongst an illustrious list of brands in WSET’s Corporate Patrons programme. The Corporate Patrons programme ensures that WSET receives essential funding to continue to develop its world class courses and qualifications, whilst helping businesses add value to their own business by maximising the benefits of training.

Ian Harris, WSET Chief Executive, says, “Education is now a key focus for all sectors of the industry and as the training and development needs of the industry evolve, so must we keep pace with change. Coravin is creating a revolution in the wine industry and having its support as a Corporate Patron will bring mutual benefits to both our businesses. Coravin joins a growing list of companies that recognise the value that education can bring to their business and customers, and we are very grateful for their support.”

Both ourselves and WSET share the same ambition of making wine accessible and enjoyable for all, and we hope that this partnership will further enable us to work towards this joint goal.”

About Coravin

Coravin, Inc. is a privately held company located in Burlington, Massachusetts focused on transforming the way wine is served, sold and enjoyed. Coravin designs and markets the Coravin System for wine enthusiasts, restaurants, wine stores and wineries. Unparalleled in craftsmanship and design, Coravin uses proprietary patented technology to access and pour wine from a bottle without pulling the cork. Wine enthusiasts can now enjoy wine sealed with corks without feeling the need to commit to the whole bottle, allowing them to explore wines of any vintage, varietal or region, one taste at a time. With Coravin, wine, after being accessed, remains in the bottle, continuing to evolve naturally. It can then be enjoyed later since it was never exposed to oxygen.
