The Overcast – Fresh off the vine: Tracey Dobbin is back from France hoping you’ll give wine a chance
Tracy Dobbin was a young professional working as an occupational therapist, moving upwards in a safe, secure career that was relatively challenging and offered a solid future. It just wasn’t the future she wanted.
“I was looking at doing something different,” she says when asked how she decided to become a wine expert. “In 2008 I took the WSET [Wine and Spirit Educational Trust] Level 1 course, and In 2011 I moved to Bordeaux. They have an international wine school and I did my masters there, since I knew it would set me apart in terms of my education. Plus it was a chance to live in France.”
