What do you need to know about Level 3 in Wines?

WSET Level 3 Wine
  • The easiest way to explain Level 3 is that you are embarking on a “world tour” of the major wine regions. You’ll go beyond just the basic appellations that produce famous grapes like Chardonnay and learn the subtle differences between Burgundian villages and Californian AVAs.
  • This is a ten-week, self-paced course with a fixed start/end date. However, you will have 12 months of access to the online learning material, providing you the flexibility to study that fits your schedule.
  • To earn the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines, you will need to pass the exam with a blind tasting of 2 wines, multiple-choice questions, and short written answer questions. The proctored exam MUST be taken in-person within 12-months from the time of your enrollment at one of our school locations across the U.S. For more info CLICK HERE.
