WSET I: Intro
August 4, 2019 | 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is intended for people who have little or no prior knowledge of wines.
It is designed to provide a sound but simple introduction to wines. The qualification will assist those who
need a basic familiarity with the main types and styles of wines, for example people who work with wines
as part of a larger beverage portfolio in the retail and hospitality sectors.
Successful candidates will be able to know the key stages in grape growing and winemaking, list the
principal types and styles of wine, state the key characteristics of wines made from the principal grape
varieties as well as other examples of wines, and know the key principles involved in the storage
and service of wine. They will consequently be in a position to answer customer queries and provide
recommendations for the service of wine.
What you’ll learn:
- The main types and styles of wine
- Common wine grapes and their characteristics
- How to store and serve wine
- The principles of food and wine pairing
- How to describe wine using the WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® (SAT)
There are no entry requirements for this qualification. You must be of legal drinking age in the country where you are attending the course to participate in any alcohol tasting. However, this is not a barrier to successfully completing the qualification.
This will be a full day of class followed by a 30 question multiple choice exam.
Registration is required no later than 5pm on July 19, 2019.
