We have brought WSET to the online world.

Working with The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), the foremost international body in the field of wine certifications, we will virtually provide students the sought-after qualifications to gain their  Level 2 Award in Wines. All-star WSET Educator & Humble Wine Manager, Desiree Russo, will host students on Zoom for 7 sessions.  

The course will cover:

• How to taste and describe wine using the WSET Level 2 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine®(SAT)

• How environmental factors, grape-growing, winemaking and maturation options influence the style and quality of wines made from eight principal grape varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio/Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Syrah/Shiraz)

• The style and quality of wines: made from 22 regionally important grape varieties (e.g. Nebbiolo, Malbec and Viognier)produced in over 70 geographical indications (GIs) around the world

• How grape varieties and winemaking processes influence key styles of  Sparkling wines & Fortified wines

• Key labelling terms used to indicate origin, style and quality

• Principles and processes involved in the storage and service of wine

• Principles of food and wine pairing

On successful completion, you will be a more confident wine taster, able to describe and compare the styles of wines produced from internationally and regionally important grape varieties. You'll know how to interpret wine labels from the main wine-producing regions of the world, and how to store, serve, taste and pair wines to get the best out of every glass.
