Receiving her award Mary commented, “I am honored beyond words to receive this Lifetime Achievement Award from WSET. When I introduced WSET’s courses to the US almost 25 years ago, I believed that the programs could change the face of wine and spirits education in my country. My early hopes have truly come to fruition and I am grateful for the opportunity to support WSET’s mission to make academic excellence accessible to wine and spirits professionals not only in New York but also nationwide.”
