Kate Middleton's sister, Pippa, already has a pretty good rep for playing hostess with the mostess but now she's gone and passed an advanced wine course at the Grape Experience Wine & Spirit School.

The 31-year-old party planner passed with distinction so is now completely clued up with everything from growing and harvesting through to labelling. Impressive.

"It is a tough course. It is hard to pass as it requires a lot of study and to get distinction it really means a lot of extra hours" Emily O'Hare, head sommelier of the River Cafe in London told MailOnline.

"There is a tasting paper of two wines examined blind and then a theory paper that tests the student on everything from vine health to the production of spirits."

Pippa Middleton Offered 'Today' Gig Yet Again

And let's not go forgetting that Pippa, fine wine extraordinaire, swears by a good glass of vino.

In her 'Mind & Body' column for Waitrose Weekend magazine she said, "I grew up with the belief that good health is about moderation in all things, so I'll be celebrating healthy living through exercise, a balanced diet and a little of the naughty stuff sprinkled in - I'm talking chocolate, crisps and the occasional glass of wine."

This new certification will definitely come in handy if she lands the rumoured TV correspondent gig on the Today Show.

According to reports NBC News has been in talks with Pippa after her interview with Today's Matt Lauer back in June proved a huge ratings hit.

Watch this space, and in the meantime here's more of Pippa's latest foodie/fitness pointers.
