WSET Level 1

I’ve completed WSET 1 & 2 through Fine Vintage’s weekend courses, and I cannot recommend them enough. Particularly for those who work full time such as myself, the weekend courses are a great way to pursue an education in wine while juggling a busy schedule. The programs are well structured and paced, and the instructors are enthusiastic and personable – creating an enjoyable and manageable learning environment.

WSET Level 2

I signed up for the WSET Level 2 course with Fine Vintage not really knowing what to expect, and it turned out to be the most amazing experience I could have asked for. Lyn Farmer was an amazing instructor and prepared me so well for the exam that I passed with distinction. I can’t wait to continue with the program and take the WSET Level 3 course.

WSET Level 1

Fine Vintage WSET 1 training was more than I expected. The instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and brought the education to life through sampling many different wines from a variety of regions while taking us on a tour of the basic fundamentals of wine. Whether you are a novice or starting your career in wine, I would highly recommend Fine Vintage, Ltd.
