Established in 2019, Wine & Spirit IQ offers consulting and training services, intelligent and fun tutored Wine & Spirit  tastings,  wine courses and international wine qualifications delivered by the Wine and Spirit Education Trust or the Wine Scholar Guild to wine enthusiasts and professionals.

Founder and director Christophe Mercier first realized his passion for wine while studying culinary arts in Northeastern France, between Jura, Alsace and Burgundy.

After an international career in food & beverage operation and education management, Christophe created and opened the Wine Studies Program of Le Cordon Bleu Dusit Culinary School and ran it for six years. Parallelly, Christophe has performed a variety of related consulting and training missions with Nestlé Food, the UNESCAP, the European Institute of Cooperation and Development, Six Senses and Spa, Luang Say Cruises, IMPACT, L'Académie Internationale des Vins en Alsace to name a few.

Contemplating the wine scene in Thailand, Christophe realized the need for wine qualifications that would be internationally recognized and relevant to the unique needs of wine enthusiasts and professionals:  Programs that would be intelligent yet unpretentious; fun, yet professional: and so, Wine & Spirit IQ was born!
