Taking Your Love of Wine to the Next Level

Whether you are a wine professional or a serious wine consumer there is no replacement for the solid educational foundation provided by the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. WSET is the most highly regarded source of a broad wine education available to the wine professional as well as the serious consumer, and this course, officially titled "Level 3 Award in Wines" leads to one of the most prized certifications in the wine world.

A New Edition Of A Classic Course

WSET revised the Level Three course materials for 2017, so we embark on this great adventure with a terrific text and a new course program that includes the latest research on viticulture, wine regions and more. The new edition of the textbook is a beautifully written and very informative guide to the nuances of wine appreciation.

This course, conducted in the atmospheric barrel room at Chicago's City Winery, goes into significant detail about grape growing, winemaking, and maturation, and then tours the world region by region. And of course, it includes extensive coaching in the foundation of the WSET approach, the acclaimed systematic tasting method that gives you a solid framework for evaluating and describing any wine you encounter.

Over the three weekends of the course (January 13, 14, 20, 21, 27 and 28)) we will taste 100 wines. Each day includes a period devoted to preparation for the certification exam at the end of day six - your gateway to the coveted Level 3 Award in Wines. We have blind practice tastings, review questions and constant coaching. Some WSET providers try to pack all the information in Level 3 into just four days, offering fewer wines and fewer opportunities to perfect your tasting method as a result. Since the exam includes a tasting module, you will want as much coaching on your tasting skills as possible.
