WSET Level 2 wine course: an OFQUAL certified wine course
Eager to know more about wine for your career related to, or in wine, or want to know more so you can better choose wines? Do the Wine Spirit Education Trust Level 2 Certificate in Wine with Caro Feely, certified wine educator, published author and winemaker at French Wine Adventures Wine School at Chateau Feely, a working organic vineyard in Saussignac near Bordeaux and Bergerac on the border of the Dordogne, the Gironde and the Lot et Garonne.
We have a 100% pass rate for our WSET courses.
The WSET level 2 wine course is essential to anyone wanting to understand more about wine and how to taste wine in a structured manner. It is also an important qualification for working or wanting to work in wine or hospitality or a related industry.
On the course you will discover international wines & learn more than you imagine possible in such a short time: the major grape varieties, wine styles from the key wine producing countries of the world, the main spirits categories and understand the factors that influence the style, quality and price of wine. You will taste more than 40 wines from around the world and learn how to assess them and what to expect from different appellations and styles.
For more info on the contents of the course and the exam please read the WSET level 2 course specification.

It is imperative to study in advance for this course so signing up at least 2 months before the course starts is recommended. For level 2 we do 16 hours classroom and you need min 28 hours study to pass so at least 12 hours pre-reading/ study is recommended – reading the text book in depth three times should do it.
