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.

Each class day involves tasting, evaluating and comparing great wines and spirits

The course 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 (March 30 & 31, April 6 & 7 and April 13 &14, 2019) we will taste over 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. Some WSET providers try to pack all the information in Level 3 into just four or five 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. At Fine Vintage, we don't believe you can really understand all the material, nor can you be fully prepared for the exam, with so few wines and so little class time. We believe gaining a full understanding of Level Three takes three weekends, and we have a pass rate higher than 85% to support our belief. We invite you to join us for a remarkable and rewarding educational and tasting experience, and really learn the WSET approach.
