We offer an array of courses to suit those who have just commenced their wine education (our PWS Introductory Wine Course is a perfect starting point) to professionals seeking industry recognition (via the Wine and Spirits Education Trust qualifications).

Partners at the Prince Wine Store – Michael McNamara and Alex Wilcox – have developed, over the past 15 years, wine courses that are inspired by their travels to significant wine regions around the world.

The Prince Wine Store Courses offered are an Introductory Wine Course, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese Wine Courses and an intensive two-week course: Burgundy and a special Barolo Master Class/Dinner. These courses are taught by the owners and members of staff and offer an informal but informative way to learn about wine. Finally, it's important to stress that one of the key aspects to all the Prince Wine Store courses is that we always use bench-mark wine examples in the curriculum.

For those wanting a more formal, and internationally recognised qualification, Prince Wine Store offer the Wine and Spirits Education Trust Level 2 Intermediate Course, Level 3 Advanced Course and (one of only two providers in Australia) the flagship qualification Level 4 Diploma.

These courses are more formal, adhering to a pre-set curriculum administered by approved tutors (including two Masters of Wine).

All the courses of the WSET culminate with an examination which is then marked by the Wine & Spirits Education Trust in London. These courses are ideal for the hospitality professional or the keen amateur.

Prince Wine Store now delivers the WSET Level 2 and 3 in the Mornington Peninsula, at our Sydney store in Zetland and soon in a variety of regions around Victoria and South Australia.

Be sure to check the website regularly as we have some exciting NEW courses planned for 2019.
