"I first met Mary when she gave a Seminar for the Wine Growers in Sofia. In Spring 2015 my two colleagues Galia and Svetla and I travelled
to the Wine Academy in Thomastown to do the WSET Level 2 Course. It suited us that the course ran over 4 continuous days .It was a small group
comprising of students from all over Europe , including some Irish students who gave us a warm Irish welcome and showed us around the Kilkenny area in evenings. Mary was an enthusiastic teacher who has a great love and knowledge of her subject.
We passed our exam with Distinctions and look forward to returning to Thomastown again to do the WSET Level 3 course."
