WSET Level 3 in Wine

This is an advanced level course and we recommend 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.

You can take this course in the following ways:

You will learn about still, sparkling and fortified wines and how their characteristics are influenced by how and where the grape is grown and how the wine is made, matured and bottled. You’ll gain advanced understanding of tasting and describing style and characteristics and to evaluate 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 course ends in two exams which must be taken in person (if studying online or self-study, the exam takes place in Manchester). The first is a 50 question multiple-choice exam plus four short answer questions, the second involves blind tasting two wines. 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 3 classroom courses take place over five 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 3 Study Guide and course materials as well as a set of professional tasting glasses to keep. We supply the wines that you will be tasting (there are over 80). We also supply food to taste for wine pairing and lunch is also included.

You’ll take the exams at the end of the final session, they are preceded by a comprehensive revision session. And don’t forget: you have free access to our WSET Wines 3 study guides so you can consolidate your learning and practice before the big day.

This course requires you to attend five full days of classroom lessons.
