Certification Courses


Saturday 19th September 2020 - in English

(For WSET level 1 in French on Saturday 17th October see here)

The WSET Level 1 certificate is a great introduction to wine covering all the fundamentals of the main grape varieties and classic wines, how to approach tasting, storage and service plus food and wine pairing.

This is the first of the 4 levels of certification offered by the globally recognised Wine and Spirit Educational Trust (WSET) and it is an ideal introduction for all beginners whether learning for pleasure or to start a career in wine.

Why study wine in a normal classroom when you can follow your course at a vineyard wine school ? Enjoy learning in the heart of the vines with practical examples of winemaking on hand.
