Is it difficult?
No, it is an introductory course that becomes increasingly more detailed as it progresses.
We do presume a basic level of knowledge, such as knowing some of the classic grapes and major wine regions. We have tried hard to make it accessible and approachable to the novice and still very interesting to the seasoned wine and food lover.
Are there pre-requisites?
No. Anyone can enroll immediately.
But if you don’t have any wine knowledge at all then it’s advisable to take our Fine Vintage Level 1 Online Course first, as you will need to know the basics of the major grapes and wine producing regions.
