The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is intended for people who have little or no prior knowledge of wines. The qualification will assist those who need a basic familiarity with the main types and styles of wines, such as people who work with wines as part of a larger beverage portfolio in the retail and hospitality sectors.
What you'll learn:
- The main types and styles of wine
- Common wine grapes and their characteristics
- How to store and serve wine
- The principles of food and wine pairing
- How to describe wine using the WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® (SAT)
This course will be a four-week, seven-module online course with Online Educator support available during this time. The course modules should be followed in order, but students are free to complete the modules at their own pace during this four-week period. Each module includes a range of independent and/or group activities supported by videos and quizzes, designed to achieve the required learning outcomes to prepare for the examination.
Students are also advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. The list of recommended wines will be provided within each relevant module, but the full list of recommended wines can also be found in the course Specification document. Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the Online Educator. If a student chooses not to taste alcohol for health or religious reasons, or is unable to purchase or access the styles of wines, this will NOT be a barrier to successfully completing the qualification.
The course content should take a minimum of six hours of study. To obtain the WSET Level 1 Award Certificate in Wine qualification, students will need to successfully pass the Computer-based exam with remote invigilation made up of 30 multiple-choice questions in 45 minutes. Results take four to five weeks to be released by WSET, and successful candidates will receive a WSET Certificate and lapel pin.
