Sovna has taken me through WSET levels 1, 2 and 3. At level 3, one realizes just how complex a subject this is and how extraordinary it is for someone to not merely be able to master it - but to be able to convey that knowledge in a manner that is comprehensible and digestible to those of us who are novices in the world of wine.
