For individuals new to wine study, this qualification provides a hands-on introduction to the world of wine. You’ll explore the main types and styles of wine through sight, smell, and taste, while also gaining the basic skills to describe wines accurately. We will also learn you how to make food and wine pairings. Upon successful completion you will receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin.
At Amsterdam Wine Academy the WSET level 1 in wine course consists of three lessons of three hours. The first two lessons will be all about the tasting, theory and wine pairing. At the last course day we will focus on doing (and passing) the exam. For this exam you need to answer 30 multiple choice questions, of which at least 21 need to be answered correct two achieve a pass. Students will make a mock exam first that will reveal possible points that need some last reviewing. Your teacher will have time to answer the final questions that arise from this test run. After the official exam there is time to enjoy a nice glass of wine together.
