Jessica Green, DipWSET, Instructor
Jessica Green came to wine studies via a background in scholarship and journalism. During a high school year in France, she toured a vineyard for the first time and developed a life-long interest in wine. She was a Morehead-Cain scholar at the University of Chapel Hill and earned an MA in Renaissance Studies at Yale. Subsequently, Jessica studied at the University of Bologna and later spent a year in the Chianti Classico region of Tuscany. For five years, she lived in Lyon, France, between Beaujolais and the wines of the Northern Rhone.
She has pursued a career in publishing — as a book and magazine editor, a literary agent, and now as a writer. She earned the WSET Diploma in 2011 in Mâcon, France and is currently a Master of Wine candidate. A native and current New Yorker, she is the mother of twin boys and is married felicitously to a husband who writes about food.
At International Wine Center, Jessica currently teaches WSET Level 2 Intermediate classes through to Level 4 Diploma classes.
