How it Works

As you work through the course you will be asked to share your learning experience with the rest of the course group, by sharing your tasting notes. Tasting is an essential part of studying for this course, and you will need to taste a minimum of 6 wines (not provided, but you will be given guidance on the styles to taste). 

Once you register, we will courier you the course materials. A few days before the course is set to start, you will receive an email directly from WSET providing you with your log-in information. You will also receive an email from Adventure in Wine with your log-in information for our Student Portal.

For the duration of this course, there will be a dedicated educator who will follow your progress in your activities and give you relevant feedback. 

The Q&A Forum is open to the group to answer any questions related to the course, but it will also be monitored by the course educator.

Each week you have activities that are intended to test your knowledge and understanding of the material. 

The recap quiz at the end of each week can be attempted as many times as you wish. These tests are graded, so do them to the best of your ability.

As well as all the materials provided by WSET, you will also have access to an Adventure in Wine educator to help you on your journey. More detailed information can be found in the course specifications.
