Le Vignoble to host WSET Level 1 & 2 Awards In Wine, January-February 2019
The Wine and Spirit Education Trust provides education and qualifications to inspire and empower the world’s wine and spirit professionals and enthusiasts, offering a comprehensive suite of globally-recognised qualifications. The courses are designed for those who are just starting out in their careers as well as established professionals and the many enthusiasts who have a passion for wines and spirits – and, from this January, Le Vignoble (Milsom Place) are offering Bath-based oenophiles the unique opportunity to go back to school with WSET in the convivial surroundings of one of the city’s most welcoming wine bars.
For individuals new to wine study, the WSET Level 1 Award in Wine (£175pp, running from 6pm on three consecutive Wednesday evenings at Le Vignoble starting on Wednesday 23 January) provides a hands-on introduction to the world of wine. You’ll explore the main types and styles of wine through sight, smell, and taste, while gaining the basic skills to describe wines accurately, and make food and wine pairings. Upon successful completion, you’ll receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin.
For those who wish to take their core understanding of wines further, the WSET Level 2 Award In Wines And Spirits (£465pp, running from 9am-5pm on three consecutive Wednesday evenings at Le Vignoble starting on Wednesday 23 January) explores the major grape varieties and important wine regions in which they are grown. You’ll learn about the styles of wines produced from these grapes as well as key classifications and labelling terminology, and a basic overview of the key categories of spirits and liqueurs will also be provided. Upon successful completion you will receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin, and will be able to use the associated WSET certified logo.
Now that’s what we call going back to school in fine (wine) style.
