Becky Doersam describes herself as “a perpetual student of wine.” Indeed, she embraces every learning opportunity including both in-person and online courses. Becky has earned the titles of Italian Wine Scholar and Spanish Wine Scholar through the Wine Scholar Guild. She has completed the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Awards in Wine Levels 1 through 4. Becky demonstrates a belief in immersion learning as well with her frequent travels to Italy, Spain, Austria, California and elsewhere to visit winemakers and taste their wines. She has a particular interest the less-common grape varieties and small-production wines from throughout the world.
A native of Philadelphia, Becky was stationed at Ft. Douglas during her tenure in the Army. She stayed on in Salt Lake City to complete a degree in Special Education at the University of Utah and to ultimately become Vision Specialist with Granite School District. Becky just retired from that career leaving even more time to advance her career in the world of wine.
Becky became a member of the Salt Lake City Bailliage of La Chaîne at the invitation of Sheral Schowe. She finds Chaîne and Mondiale events as the perfect place to experience exceptional wine and food parings with fellow aficionados. Welcome, Becky. We are so happy that you are a part of our bailliage.
