  • Course Outline

    This is an entry level qualification providing a straightforward introduction to wine. It is a great course for those wanting to know about wine styles, grape varieties, food & wine pairing and correct service and storage of wines.

    The course includes a tutored tasting of 10 wines and a food and wine matching exercise (it is not necessary to take part in winetasting which makes this level suitable for students who prefer not to drink alcohol but who still want a recognised qualification).

    Over and above the WSET Level 1 wine course, the International Wine Education Centre includes an additional module, focusing on South African wines.
