The WSET level 2 wine course teaches you about wine and how to taste wine in a structured manner. It is also a great qualification for working or wanting to work in wine or hospitality industry.
On the course you will discover international wines & learn the major grape varieties, wine styles from the key wine producing countries of the world, the main spirits categories and the factors that influence the style, quality and price of wine. You will taste more than 40 wines/ spirits from around the world and learn how to assess them and what to expect from different appellations and styles.
The course includes study pack and text book, exam on the 3rd day, wines tasted (including grand cru classés) and lunches. It is 600 euro HT (720 euro TTC) excluding accommodation (accommodation on site 139 euro for two sharing with organic breakfast or 129 euro for a single with breakfast or we can propose a B&B nearby). WSET provides training in wine for professionals and consumers who wish to enhance their wine knowledge and gain a formal qualification. WSET courses and exams are a benchmark for wine education throughout the world and are offered in 141 different countries, adjudicated by WSET in London and part of their internationally recognised programme.
It is imperative to study in advance so signing up at least 2 months before the course starts is recommended. For level 2 we do 18 hours classroom and you need min 28 hours study to pass so at least 8 hours pre-reading/ study is recommended – reading the text book in depth twice should do it -and then 2 hours each night here evenings during the 3 days).
