Whether you’re looking for a professional wine qualification, or purely for pleasure, wine courses are a most palatable way to learn a great deal more, both of theory and practical wine tasting.

The West of England Wine School is the foremost wine education body in the South West, providing all levels of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) courses, from the entry level Foundation, through to the Diploma Honours.

We also have the benefit of a team of tutors many of them still engaged in the wine trade and all of them experts in their particular subject areas.

The WSET courses are internationally recognised as the finest vocational wine courses in the world, so it makes sense for them to be available to interested consumers as well as wine professionals.

Although each level is serious and finishes with a short exam, the modules are most enjoyable, with plenty of opportunity to practice your tasting and food-matching skills alongside fellow enthusiasts, and under the guidance of an experienced tutor. The subject of each module is carefully structured to build on the information provided in the previous ones, especially with the approach to tasting.

The fee for your WSET Level 2 includes all materials, WSET study pack and exam, and 6 ISO tasting glasses. Students will also need to bring something to spit into, plus a cloth to dry their glasses after washing. The programme will cover the following topics:

  • Tasting Technique and Food & Wine Matching
  • Wine Service and Storage
  • Viticulture and Vinification
  • The Major Grape Varieties and their interpretation around the World
  • The Wines of France
  • The Wines of Germany
  • The Wines of Italy, Spain and Portugal
  • The Wines of the Americas and Southern Hemisphere Sparkling Wines
  • Fortified Wines and Spirits

We hope this has whetted your appetite and if you would like to enrol, please click on an upcoming date you wish to attend and fill in the form.
