COURSE DESCRIPTION

A WINE INDUSTRY ACHIEVEMENT: Spend 7 Days immersing yourself in every major wine region. 

WSET stands for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, a global wine education and examination body based in London. The WSET Level 3 course (formerly called the advanced certificate) is one of the most globally-recognized achievements in the wine industry. Offered by Grape Experience, the most experienced provider of WSET certifications on the West Coast, the Level 3 Certificate is geared towards wine professionals or people interested in entering the wine industry, especially those looking for increased responsibility, leadership, and decision-making.  Wine enthusiasts with a serious commitment and passion will also enjoy this course, as it is interactive and customized to individual class dynamics and interests. 

In this newly-revised program, we’ll embark on an in-depth examination—and systematic tasting program—of every major world wine region, including France, Italy, Spain, and other regions in Europe, North and South America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.  For each region we examine the soil, climate, viticulture and winemaking factors that impact wine style, quality, and price. We’ll also cover additional types of wine, including fortified and sparkling wines, as well as spirits and liqueurs. Systematic wine tasting is a part of every session, with more than 90 wines tasted in the course.

The Level 3 course includes a complete study pack with an exclusive textbook and study workbook.
