WSET Level 2 award in Wine

This is 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 can take this course in the following ways:

You will learn about a wide range of wines – the regions in which the principal and significant grape varieties are grown and the styles of wine they produce. You’ll also learn how to confidently describe wines having tasted over 40 samples and understand the factors that impact their style and quality.

You need to be over 18 (there’s wine-tasting involved) and we provide you with extra support in the form of our exclusive study guides. These are free to Northern Wine School students and have been developed to really help you with your studies.

The classroom course ends in a paper based exam in Manchester or Liverpool. If studying online or self-study options, the exam takes place online. It is a 50 question multiple-choice exam which lasts for one hour. You must score 55% or above to pass. Those who pass will get a certificate and lapel pin and the right to use the associated WSET Certified logo. Oh, by the way: we have a 100% pass rate!

We are a Wine Scholar Guild approved instructor

Classroom

Our WSET Wines Level 2 classroom courses take place over three consecutive weeks – one full day each week. They are run by a WSET Certified Wine Educator (with a 100% pass rate). You will be given the WSET Wines 2 Study Guide, a manual and a specification and SAT tasting card.

We supply the wines that you will be tasting (there are over 40).

You’ll take the paper based exam at the end of the final session. And don’t forget: you have free access to our WSET Wines 2 study guides so you can consolidate your learning and practice before the day.
