WSET Level 3 Award in Wines

The WSET Level 3 Award in Wines qualification is designed to give a thorough understanding of the principal wines of the world and their commercial importance in the world's liquor market.

We are offering the course both online and in-class.  The first online course is scheduled for January 17th with registration due by the end of December 2020.  The in-class course starts Monday February 8th at 6pm.

The qualification will assist those who are required to make professional evaluations of wines and spirits with regard to their commercial value. Holders of the Level 3 Award will be able to describe the characteristics of the principle wines and spirits of the world and give information on the key factors influencing style, quality and value.

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