BEGINNER WINE COURSES

WSET Levels 1 and 2

Overview of Levels 1 and 2

Grape Experience offers two WSET beginner wine education courses that are open to anyone.

No experience is required for either WSET Level

  • WSET Level 1 and WSET Level 2 are equally great starting points if you are seeking a career change, a promotion or just want to deepen your wine knowledge.
  • You do not need to take Level 1 to take Level 2.
  • If you’re looking for a more in-depth wine class, start with Level 2.

WSET LEVEL 2 CERTIFICATE IN WINES

  If you know the basic wine grapes—that Chardonnay is a white wine and Cabernet Sauvignon is usually red—then begin at Level 2. This beginner to intermediate wine course offers greater breadth and depth of material, more tasting opportunities and additional classroom hours compared to Level 1. It’s for anyone who:
• Works in wine or who want a career in the industry
• Has a serious interest in deepening their wine knowledge
• Wishes to become a more confident wine taster

Level 2 details and upcoming classes

What’s covered

Discover how to systematically taste wine, and the factors that influence style, quality, and price. Learn the world’s major grape varieties and types of wine: white and black grape varieties, sparkling wines, sweet and fortified wines. The course includes a study pack with proprietary textbook and study workbook. Students complete a 50-question multiple-choice exam and, upon passing, receive the official WSET Level 2 WSET Certificate in Wine.

 

Classroom Courses

  • Wines of the world are covered in 8 segments (held either weekly or over the course of 3-4 days).
  • Wine tasting is a part of every session and over 40 wines are tasted during the course.

Online Courses

  • A 5-week program with a series of online activities overseen by an online tutor through the WSET Online Classroom.
  • Each week covers a new topic and students can log in anytime during the week (there are set start and finish dates for each week, but no set class time).
  • Tasting activities (to be done on the student’s own) are also provided to familiarize you with a systemic approach to tasting at an intermediate level.
  • At course completion, students arrange with Grape Experience to take an in-person multiple choice exam.
