Level 2 Wines expands the knowledge built up at Level 1 through the world’s major grape varieties and key regions, and is an excellent way to taste and learn so much more about the world of wine.
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 and we look forward to welcoming you on a course soon.
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 1 in Wine, Spirits & Sake through to level 4 Wines. In the recent April 2019 Level 2 exam our five candidates scored two Distinctions and three Merits. Plmen Kolev from that course provided the following feedback:
We have the benefit of a team of tutors involved in many areas of the wine trade, all of them experts in their particular subject areas and including several Masters of Wine.
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 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
