Maria Vicente - WSET instructor at Plansel International Wine School

How it all began

I decide to work in the wine industry, still as a student after my first internship at Madeira Wine Company. Just after this period, I received the invitation to represent a Portuguese wine region in the world fair. And with this, my fate was sealed.


The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is the leading institution in the development of courses and qualifications in wines and spirits. This is why I couldn´t chose a different provider to deepen my knowledge. Knowledge of the wines of the world and to use them as a professional tool.
