Study WSET Level 2 at our Greenwich shop

Have you ever considered learning more about wine and never had the opportunity? We are pleased to announce that we are now offering the WSET Level 2 qualification in our Greenwich shop.

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust, often referred to as WSET, is a global organisation regarded as one of the world’s leading providers of wine education. Achieving WSET certification is a very important step if you are starting your wine career. If you are a wine lover looking to improve your knowledge, finishing the course will bring you more confidence to explore wine lists in restaurants, bars and wine shops.

The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines is the perfect wine course for anyone wishing to learn more about a wide range of grapes and styles. It is perfect for wine enthusiasts or industry professionals looking to learn more and gain a respected qualification.

Hosted by our WSET qualified tutors, these fun and informative classes take place over eight consecutive Saturdays (10am – midday) in the comfortable surroundings of our Greenwich shop on Saturday mornings.

The Course

The Level 2 Award requires 16 hours of tutored learning and 11 hours of personal study and revision.

Small classes of 12 to 14 people will receive direct tutoring. Included in the fee are all learning materials, over 40 wine samples and a one-hour multiple choice exam. There will be a one hour exam, with 50 multiple-choice questions, on the final Saturday.

You will gain knowledge about how environmental factors, grape-growing, winemaking and maturation options influence the style and quality of wines made from eight principal grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio/Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah/Shiraz.

You will learn about the style and quality of wines made from 22 regionally important grape varieties produced in over 70 geographical indications (GIs) around the world. In addition, you will understand how grape varieties and winemaking processes influence key styles of Sparkling wines and Fortified wines.

At the end of the course, you will be able to identify key wine bottle labelling terms, the processes involved in the storage and service of wine and the principles of food and wine pairing.
