Wine Education – WSET Level 1 – Course Guide

In this video I take you through WSET Level 1 helping you understand what to expect if you are thinking about taking the course

A beginner level introduction to wine suitable for those starting a wine career or pursuing an interest in wine.
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, and make food and wine pairings.



  1. I want to take WSET – I have been warring between 1 and 2. I think 1 would be better for me as I have only been studying wine for several months, but I am broke! Would you say that not eating meat or dairy is an issue? Are we expected to eat food during the exam?

  2. Great information thank you.

  3. Underneath The Bottle

    I started right on level 3 as they also do a basic coverage on the first day, but the next day the learning curve goes quickly up. I'd recommend just going for the 3rd right away. But then again I was working in the service industry 5years before this. So I was more or less already well informed around the topics. Great video! ?? Cheers
