WSET Level 2 Award in Wines, Wednesday 29th to Friday 31st March 2023
WSET Examination Courses London
Berry Bros. & Rudd's examination courses are devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET). These formally and internationally recognised courses are followed by those entering the wine and hospitality trades, but are also ideal for those seeking official recognition of their achievements.
We’d like to assure you that we’re running our WSET courses in line with government advice, with social distancing and hygiene measures in place.
During the course, emphasis is on personal tuition and group discussion in our unique surroundings. As well as delicious lunches, refreshments are served during the day. The course ends with a celebratory glass of Champagne to toast your achievement.
The price 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 before the course begins, so you can start your studies before classes commence.
This three-day course is a fun and informative way to complete the WSET Level 2 wine qualification. Starting at 9am with tea and coffee, each session will include a delicious picnic lunch before resuming teaching for the afternoon. The course will finish each day at 4pm. Please note there will be additional revision exercises that you will be required to complete at home after each course day.
The WSET Level 2 Award in Wine is devised by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. It is an internationally recognised course that is generally taken by those entering the wine and hospitality trades but can be comfortably achieved by those with little or no previous wine knowledge. A wide selection of wines will be tasted at each session to give you a broad introduction to the many wine styles of the world and you will also learn tasting techniques to help you build greater confidence in identifying the technical elements of wine.
We cover the syllabus over three days and the examination is sat on the Friday afternoon 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, tasting samples and lunch. Course materials are sent to you in advance after registration and we recommend that you read them thoroughly before starting the course.
