WSET Level 3 Award in Wines is a certification course exploring wines suitable for industry professionals and wine enthusiasts. Through this instructor-led sixteen-week course (Thursdays from 6 – 8, August 8 – December 12) taught by Dr. Bruce Smoller, you’ll learn about wine from the ground to the glass. You’ll gain knowledge of the principal and regionally significant grape varieties of the world, the regions in which they are grown, and the styles of wine they produce. Through a combination of tasting and theory, you’ll explore the factors that impact style and quality and learn how to confidently describe these wines.

While there is no pre-requisite to take this course, WSET Level 2 in Wines or the equivalent is strongly recommended. Following the course, a 2.5-hour exam is comprised of two units.

  • UNIT 1: Theory exam featuring 50 multiple-choice questions and a question paper requiring short written answers. Unit 1 must be completed within two hours.
  • UNIT 2: Tasting exam consisting of two blind wines to assess a candidate’s ability to accurately describe a wine and draw conclusions based on the observations learned during the course. Unit 2 must be completed within 30 minutes.

Your ticket price includes: study materials; 16 weeks of instructor-led classes; wine tasting; an exam featuring multiple choice questions, short answer theory questions, and a tasting; and a certificate and lapel pin upon successful completion of the course and exam.

CLASS DATES: Thursdays from 6 – 8pm, August 8 – December 12 (exam on the last day).
REGISTRATION DEADLINE: Thursday, August 1, 2024
