The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines was originally designed as an entry level qualification aimed at providing a framework of knowledge for new or inexperienced front line staff in hospitality and retail.  It is now a course with a much broader appeal and anyone with little wine knowledge will benefit from this program.

This is a one day course.  To gain the qualification students need to successfully pass a 30-question multiple choice paper and a food and wine pairing exercise both of which will take place at the end of the day. Successful candidates will receive a certificate and WSET Level 1 Award in Wine lapel pin.
