The Academy of Wine & Spirits offers WSET courses in South Africa

The Academy of Wine & Spirits is approved to offer a range of WSET courses in South Africa.

The Academy of Wine & Spirits is an approved program provider, since 2015, and offers a range of WSET courses in South Africa. The WSET wine education courses are offered and recognised internationally and since 1969 have been the world’s leading provider of qualifications in wines and spirits. Tutored by approved lecturers, courses and examinations will be offered in Johannesburg and Stellenbosch, for now, and will cover WSET Levels 1 to 3.

The AWS is presenting the WSET Level 2 qualification in wines and spirits in Stellenbosch in July 2017 and contact details are available below.

This qualification is an entry level academic qualification and you will learn how wine is made, factors that influence wine styles, the main white and red grape varieties, the important regions of the world, production of sweet and sparkling wines as well as fortified wines. The course will also give you Food and Wine pairing options as well as touch on Spirits categories and production. WSET presents the student with a full package of materials: including a study book, workbook, and tasting card. You will be learning to taste with the Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine (SAT), and will have an in-depth tasting journey into many wines around the world.

Once you have written the multiple-choice exam, and it has been marked, you receive an internationally recognized certificate and a lapel pin.

It’s never too late to learn!

Come and immerse yourself in the world of wine, for two fun-filled days, whether it is for your personal satisfaction, or for a career move into hospitality, retail or wholesale wine and spirits sectors.

Applications for the WSET Level 2 Wine & Spirits Course are now open. This course will be taught in Stellenbosch starting in July 2017.
