Chairman’s Christmas Message

Celebrate WSET Study Awards with the West of England Wine School

Another year in the life of the Association has come around and with all that has been going on in the world, the whole committee not only send you our best wishes at this Christmas time but we also hope our members and families are in good health, and that the impact of Covid has not been too severe on your business.

We will all being well be having our AGM and Annual Lunch on the first Monday in February and details will be published shortly.  This year whilst organising events or trips has not been a realistic prospect we have been able to maintain delivering world class education for wine and spirits professionals. Our Education Team of Lys Hall and Tim Johnson and their team of lecturers have done wonders to deliver WSET Level 1 to 4 courses despite the challenges to normal life.

We have much more planned for 2022 where we can I hope and pray have a more normal outlook on the world.  This Christmas I hope and pray that you have the opportunity to be with the ones you love and to have some excellent wine and spirits to accompany the festivities.

Take care, stay safe and have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Paul Langham
