WSET Level 2 Award in Wines, Mondays, January to February 2020

Description

This evening course will be a fun and informative way to complete the WSET Level 2 wine qualification. We will cover the course over four weeks, with the exam in the fifth week. Starting at 5.30pm, each session will include a light buffet supper, ending at 9.15pm.

The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines is devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust and is the internationally recognised course that is followed by those entering the wine and hospitality trades. It can be comfortably achieved by those with little or no previous wine knowledge. A selection of wines will be tasted at each session, offering a broad introduction. The course also teaches tasting techniques from which to build tasting experience. We cover the syllabus over four weeks and the examination is sat in the final fifth session by way of a 50-question multiple choice paper to be completed within one hour.

The course cost covers WSET examination fees, WSET course materials, WSET accredited tuition, use of Berry Bros. & Rudd equipment and tasting samples. Course materials are sent to you in advance and we recommend that you read them thoroughly before starting the course. Hosted by Olivia Bodle, Fine Wine Specialist
