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.
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
The course consists of 15 3-hr sessions and a final exam
We will be studying:
