Pippa Middleton poised to enter wine trade?

The Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa Middleton, has passed an advanced wine course, perhaps paving the way for her to become a fully-fledged sommelier or enter the wine trade.

Pippa Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge’s 31-year-old sister, has completed her advanced certificate in wine with the Grape Experience Wine & Spirit School, a wine California-based school approved by the Wine and Spirit Education Trust, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The 15-session course covers every major world wine region and the viticultural and winemaking trends that affect wine style, quality and price. Systematic wine tasting is a part of every session, with over 90 wines tasted throughout the course, culminating with an exam. Pippa passed the exam with a distinction, signalling that she is serious about wine.

The brunette is currently said to be negotiating a deal with NBC to work as a correspondent for the Today Show and is known to have already filmed a test segment in Wyoming.
