According to the Commonwealth Wine School, this wine certification class for beginners is a perfect next step on your wine adventure. Basically, if you know that Chardonnay is a white wine and Cabernet Sauvignon is a red wine, then you're a fit.
Well that was easy. So now onto polishing that wine palate if you're ready. From the Vine to Wine will have a certification course starting January 9 at Vino e Vivo in Exeter and January 10 at From the Vine to Wine in Portsmouth.
The more I read about this beginner to intermediate wine course, it's actually a pretty intense 8-week classroom course filled with lectures, wine tastings, quizzes, and a final exam. There's also online components. So if you're a pretty serious wine-lover, then this class will expand your passion and proficiency.
This qualification is intended for beginners wishing to learn about a wide range of wines. You’ll gain knowledge of the principal and regionally important 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 describe these wines with confidence.
This class is what's called a Level 2 WSET Certified class. WSET stands for Wine, Spirit, and Education Trust, and provides the best in class, education, and qualification for the world's wine and spirits professionals and enthusiasts, according to its website.
