WSET Level 1 Course

Join us for the WSET level 1 course, a one-day Foundation course in our Virtual Classroom. This hands-on course teaches students through sight, smell, and taste, to understand more about wine. By the end of the WSET level 1 course, you’ll be able to taste wine using a systematic approach and be able to identify the main styles of wine. You’ll also learn the key principles of food and wine pairing and be able to apply these to your own food and wine choices.

In addition, our expert instructors will teach you the basics of tasting using our 6-bottle tasting kits shipped directly to you! The course includes an online study module, wine kit, and all exam fees.

To obtain the WSET Level 1 Award Certificate in Wine, you will need to successfully pass an online OR in-person exam that is made up of 30 multiple-choice questions. 

Successful students will receive a WSET certificate.
