WSET Level 2 Award in Wines

You don’t need the Level 1 qualification to study the Level 2 Award in Wines. 

In the Level 2 course you’ll explore the factors which make a difference to the style and quality of wines, and you’ll learn how to describe them.

The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines will develop both your tasting skills and theory.
