Pippa Middleton is an oenophile – Kate’s sister has a diciplined devotion to wine, it's official. Even the most extensive and obscure wine lists are no match for her sommelier skills.
Pippa has completed an advanced wine course and is now a certified expert on grape growth, harvesting, wine-making, labelling and tasting. She achieved tiptop marks in her recent exams, beating all the other graduating candidates (high-achievement runs in the family).
As a result she will be she will be honoured next week by a group of six prestigious wine traders known as The Bunch. The prize? Glory and six cases of vino worth £1,500. Cheers to that.
