Korean-born Jeannie Cho Lee is a dissertation away from becoming Asia’s first Master of Wine, a distinction only 265 people in the world have obtained. Reuters reported that the “Master of Wine has been likened to a PhD”–so really, it was only a matter of time before one of us got one. The Oxford-educated Lee, a mother of four, is particularly exceptional because she does not work in the wine industry and all of this began as a “hobby.”
Which is great news for Diana and me, since we fancy ourselves wine hobbyists, too! Oenophiles, in fact, which I believe is Greek for winos.
