Who are WSET?

The Wine and Spirits Education Trust is a global organisation to promote high quality education and sought after qualifications in wines and spirits. See www.wsetglobal.com

The two WSET® qualifications (Levels 1 and 2) are recognised throughout the world. It is not necessary to complete Level 1 before Level 2, therefore you can start at Level 2 if you wish. Level 2 is accredited as such in the UK National Qualification Framework as equivalent to a GCSE.

Why take a WSET® qualification at Auberge du Vin? This is a special opportunity to study wine in the heart of a classic French wine region. You can see the vines from the classroom, taste the local wines, speak with their winemakers and hear about the latest developments in the vineyards and wineries. All this will help create a lasting impression of the course and increase your understanding of wine.
