Description

This three-day course is a fun and informative way to complete the WSET Level 2 wine qualification. 

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. You will also learn tasting techniques to help you build greater confidence in identifying the technical elements of wine.   

The syllabus will be covered over three days of tuition, culminating with an examination on the Friday afternoon. The examination is a 50-question, multiple-choice paper to be completed within one hour. 

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 course cost covers WSET examination fees, WSET course materials, WSET accredited tuition, use of Berry Bros. & Rudd equipment, tasting samples, lunch and a post-examination Champagne reception. Course materials are sent to you in advance after registration and we recommend that you read them thoroughly before starting the course.
