ONLINE WSET Level 1

ONLINE WSET Level 1

The ONLINE WSET Level 1 in Wines is an entry level qualification providing a straightforward introduction to wine. A great course for those wanting to taste & recognise the main grape varieties, & explore food and wine

Learn about wines through a 2 or 3 week study programme with 2 or 3 LIVE online classroom sessions (also recorded so you can watch them back).  Plus, the support of our expert educators to answer any questions and help with your studying. The Level 1 Award in Wines Online covers the same syllabus as the classroom course - but through online platforms (Zoom/ClickMeeting) which allows you to study alongside your peers under the guidance of a dedicated educator.

You will learn how to taste wine using a systematic approach and be able to identify the main styles of wine. You’ll also learn to apply these to your own food and wine choices.

Tasting is a very enjoyable part of studying for this course and we recommend you taste a minimum of 6 wines (there is an option to purchase an accompanying tasting case from local wine merchants or we can provide guidance on the styles to taste for you to source yourself!)

The course tutor will send through the recommended wine styles for students to obtain and sample as part of this course. We have also hand-selected a tasting case of 24 wines (comprised of half bottles and full bottles) that can be purchased in addition to the course fee. If you would like to purchase this case (as opposed to sourcing the wines yourself), a link to purchase this tasting case will be sent to you upon registering for this course. Delivery to any address in mainland UK is free. Currently, we are unable to arrange delivery to addresses outside of Mainland UK.
