WSET Level 2 Award in Wines, July 2020


This three-day course is a fun and informative way in which to complete the WSET Level 2 wine qualification. Starting at 9am, each session will include a delicious buffet lunch with further refreshments served at 5pm, and the course will conclude with a two-hour revision session ending at 7pm.

The WSET Level 2 Award in Wine 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 three days and the examination is sat on the following Monday 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 after registration and we recommend that you read them thoroughly before starting the course.

Unfortunately, we have postponed all events at our St James’s premises until the end of July. We are constantly reassessing the situation and considering the feasibility of events after this date. In the meantime, we are offering virtual tastings online. We’ll arrange delivery of wines, glasses and a corkscrew to your guests ahead of a guided tasting with one of our expert hosts. For more information, please contact us.

Berry Bros. & Rudd's examination courses are devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) and are formally and internationally recognised courses that are followed by those entering the wine and hospitality trades. These enjoyable courses are ideal also for those who seek official recognition of their achievements. Emphasis is on personal tuition and group discussion in our unique surroundings.

As well as delicious picnic-style lunches, refreshments are served during the two sessions each day. The course ends with a celebratory glass of Champagne to toast your achievement.

The course cost covers WSET examination fees, course materials, accredited tuition, use of our equipment and our tasting samples. Course materials and mock papers are sent to you two months before the course begins, so you can start your studies before classes commence.
