The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines was originally designed as an entry level qualification for new or inexperienced front line staff in hospitality and retail.  It has evolved and now experiences much broader appeal. Anyone just starting to learn about wine would benefit from this fun and interactive course. 

During the morning session, we learn about wine and and how to taste in a more mindful way than simply drinking with friends on a patio. We'll explore different styles of wine, learn about the service and storage of wine and gain a little insight  and legal issues surrounding wine before we break for our catered lunch.

The afternoon is all about playing with your food. By combining different foods with wine, you'll learn how each of the major flavour senses (sweet, salt, bitter, sour, umami) interact with wine and change it for the positive (or negative). What a great take-away for the next time you're entertaining or dining out! 

Who should take this course

  • You have limited wine knowledge and you want to  learn about the main styles of wine and the foods that work with them
  • You are starting your first job in hospitality or retail

Course outline

  • The main styles of wine
  • The WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine
  • The characteristics of the common grape varieties
