Level One WSET

Level one is a great introduction to wine, you will learn the main types and styles of wine, common grape varieties, how to store and serve wine. Along side this you will also discover wine and food matching, what works and understanding why.

Theory is all very well however, tasting wine is really where a greater understand comes in and this is why we learn how to describe wine using the standard Systematic approach to wine tasting (SAT).
