Enhance your knowledge with accredited qualifications from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET), with The Tasting Class who are the first Approved Programme Provider in the region for consumers.
WSET is the largest international provider of wines and spirits qualifications, offering globally-recognised qualifications.
Led by international industry expert and experienced sommelier, Lindsay Trivers, The Tasting Class offers a broad range of tasting events. These range from social blind tastings with games and prizes to cheese pairings, fine dining and classroom-style lessons, which attract a broad clientele – including friends looking for a fun group activity, through to hospitality professionals keen to progress their own F&B career.
“What is most exciting, though, is now these courses will be offered to anyone interested to learn more about what they are drinking. Everyone is welcome to attend!”
The Tasting Class will offer WSET’s Level 1 Award in Wines and Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits. The courses are designed to give a hands-on introduction to the world of wine and beverage in an interactive and relaxed atmosphere.
WSET Level 1 Award in Wines covers the basics of wine types and styles through sight, smell, and taste, as well as how to store and serve wine and pairing food with wine.
WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits digs deeper to explore the major grape varieties and the styles of wines they produce, as well as important wine regions in which they are grown.
Participants also learn about key classifications and labelling terminology and are given a basic overview of the key categories of spirits and liqueurs.
