“At the cutting-edge of Chinese wine education”

Decanter Magazine

How did Dragon Phoenix grow and come into fruition? Academics and university teachers, Fongyee Walker MW and Edward Ragg MW left Cambridge, England in 2007 and headed to Beijing in search of a new life and the chance to further the cause of Chinese wine education. Whilst teaching at Tsinghua University, they researched the Beijing market and in late 2007 Dragon Phoenix Wine Consulting was born.

Studying for and completing the WSET Diploma Award in Wines and Spirits at Dragon Phoenix was not a particularly difficult experience, but it was never easy! Fongyee’s analysis of the WSET Level 4 Diploma course structure is very important and highlighted to me how, although each unit is independent, the learning is holistic. Xing Wei also provided some support with exam answering skills, which was very helpful and allowed us to understand exam strategy better.

It’s been just two years since I started learning about wine! Transformed from a beginner to a super-fan; from enjoying simple self-study to exploring the professionally structured training at Dragon Phoenix; from feeling an emotional connection with wine, then developing a systematic way of studying and tasting. I learnt everything with passion and have become more professional too! This has provided me the opportunity to understand more advanced information about wine, even though there is always more to learn. If you really love wine, you should know that, thanks to the WSET and Dragon Phoenix's education programs, more people in China are now coming into the wine world with a professional and serious attitude!

I am a Vice President of a liquor franchising company. In 2017, I was very fortunate to study at Dragon Phoenix and have gone from being a total beginner to a WSET Level 3 Award in Wines holder, passing with ‘Distinction’. I am very thankful to Dragon Phoenix as I have gained a lot! As I work in wine selection, I am very aware of the importance of wine professionalism and developing a systematic understanding of wine. But this was something in which I felt a lack of experience. Dragon Phoenix has helped put me in the right direction and find the perfect solution. The systematic learning and training at Dragon Phoenix has helped me a lot in my work in wine selection. All my thanks to Dragon Phoenix, to Fongyee, Xing Wei, Liu Chang and Tang Zhu.

I started the two-year WSET Level 4 Diploma course in September 2015. I am very fortunate to have learnt about wine from Fongyee and Edward – especially in regards to blind-tasting and wine business knowledge – because if you only count on yourself it will be a long process of accumulation. Also, in the selection of wine, Dragon Phoenix is very conscientious. They always try to use some typical but sometimes hard-to-find wines and many wines have been brought by educators when they travelled abroad. Dragon Phoenix’s logistics are, frankly, perfect. Ding Li (we call her “Boss Ding”), who is Dragon Phoenix’s WSET Level 4 Course Co-ordinator, works really hard to help everyone customize their study plans so that we have no worries and can concentrate on the exam. Every time exam results come out, she will inform us straight away. I must say, in the two years of studying, Boss Ding's emails and WeChat messages are my most anticipated things! Finally, I feel that my biggest motivation in learning WSET Level 4 is the inspiration from Fongyee and Edward and their attitude towards wine. After I passed the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines, my curiosity about wine became even stronger and I am now eager to continue learning even more.

For me, wine is a happy thing. If I can gain knowledge, make friends and even set myself some goals while tasting wine, it can be even more fun! With Dragon Phoenix, I was fortunate to have all of these come true. Thank you!
