The wonderful world of wine: it’s been with us for thousands of years and people love it – we certainly do.
We are firm believers in the idea that the more you know about something, the more you can get out of it – be that professionally or personally. That’s why we offer a range of different wine courses – whether you want to further your career or simply want to learn more about wine, we’re here to help.
We offer all three WSET Wine levels as well as both French and Spanish Wine Scholar Guild Accreditations. In addition, we also include free access to our own exclusively developed study guides for those taking any of the WSET courses.
This is your entry level course – great for those starting their wine journey, whether that’s a career or simply an interest. You’ll learn how to taste, about grape varieties, regions and climates as well as how to pair food and wine.
An intermediate level course. You don’t need to have taken level one, nor do you need any experience; however, it is designed for industry professionals and those with a really keen interest in wine. You will learn about a wide range of wines.
The advanced level – it is recommended that you hold a WSET Level 2 award or have a very good knowledge of wine. You will gain a really deep understanding of grape growing and wine making, including sampling over 80 wines.
This is an advanced and highly respected accreditation that goes into great depth about all French wine appellations and how their identities are shaped. It is classroom-based, lasts for ten weeks and is made up of two-and-a-half-hour sessions.
