WSET® LEVEL 1 AWARD IN WINES ONLINE

$299.00

An online (live web-conference) basic level introduction to wine course. Great for individuals pursuing an interest in wine, wine lovers, wine collectors or for those who want to start a career in the wine business. You’ll explore the main  grape varieties, wine regions and styles of wine through sight, smell, and taste, while also gaining the basic skills to describe wines accurately.

In this class, we analyze about 12 different wines and learn about storage, service of wine and we also do an interesting food and wine pairing exercise. It is recommended to all students to order at least 6 of these wines to participate in the online tasting. For that reason, we have partnered with our great neighbors from Seabord Wine in Raleigh and Wine Feed Durham. We will provide a discount code to you and they will be more than happy to process your order and deliver it to you.  If you are from another city, no worries, you will be able to find these wines in any online wine store.

Price includes the WSET® Level 1 Study Guide, 6 hour of web-conference class, tuition, printed materials and exam. Exams dates will be scheduled once per month, starting on May 30th and then June 13th.  Please note that these dates are subject to change during these times.
