Due to irreconcilable differences. Or at least, that’s how I think of it. Since taking the WSET Diploma Unit 3 exam (aka The Big One) in June, when people asked how I did, I’d reply that I thought I’d pass, if it wasn’t a WSET exam. Alas, the comment turned out to be prophetic. I failed both parts of the exam. And did so rather decisively. A brief recap: The tasting exam was of four flights of wines, 3 wines per flight. I passed one...

For those of you who aren’t following us on either Facebook or Twitter (for shame!), Anthroenology is currently in the field. I have a backlog of updates for the blog, but those are on hold. Look for us on Facebook or Twitter to see what goes on in the next week or so. ...
