The Intermediate program is intended for those with little previous experience in the field of wine and spirits. Students will also be introduced to the main styles of wines produced by key grape varieties and a specific number of regions. By the end of the course a student will know, simply by reading a wine or spirit label  what most wine and spirits taste like.

The course is very suitable for people who are not employed in the drinks industry but wish to learn more about the subject. However, it is important that potential students appreciate that this is primarily a professional development course for the hospitality industry and is approached in that way by our tutors.

Once you have paid, in full, for your WSET Level 2 Course you can collect your classroom booklet and materials from the Prince Wine Store, 177 Bank Street, South Melbourne or relevant satellite location.

Cancellation policy:  If, for unforseen circumstances, the course has to be cancelled you will be informed prior to the commencement date and refunded your money OR booked into a future course.
