The WSET Level 3 Award in Wines will develop your ability to describe wine accurately, and account in detail for the style, quality and price of wines. Our experienced educators will assist you to develop your analytic tasting abilities as we taste through approximately 90 wines.

Successful students will receive a WSET Level 3 certificate and lapel pin, and will be able to use the associated WSET certified logo.

Prerequisites

WSET Level 2 is not a prerequisite for this course. However, WSET Level 3 requires substantial wine knowledge and is quite a challenging program, even to those who have taken many other wine classes. For this reason, we highly recommend taking Level 2 before embarking on Level 3. We have an on-line assessment that will need to be completed should you not have WSET Level 2. Please contact us for details

Course outline

The course consists of 15 3-hr sessions and a final exam

We will be studying:

  • The key factors in the production of wine: location, grape growing, winemaking, maturation and bottling

  • The key characteristics of the main

    • still wines of the world

    • sparkling wines of the world

    • fortified wines of the world

  • How to make appropriate wine recommendations

  • How to taste wines using the WSET Level 3 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® (SAT)

  • Tutored tastings of approximately 90 wines

 

What are the requirements?

During the program, you will be expected to spend considerable time studying on your own. Including time spent in class, WSET recommends that a minimum of 84 hours is spent on preparation. 

The final exam is two hours in length and covers theory and tasting. The theory exam includes 50 multiple choice questions and four short written answers. For the tasting portion, candidates will be presented with two wines blind for which a complete analysis using the Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® will have to be written.

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!

  • 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
