The Diploma Course with Fine Vintage is extraordinary. As a student, I’ve had the opportunity to meet and learn from some of the best professionals the world of wine has to offer from winemakers to sommeliers and specialists. I recommend 10/10.

ELIANA BRAY
Having first taken the WSET 3 course through Fine Vintage Ltd. before enrolling in the WSET 4 Diploma, I knew that I would be exposed to an extremely high level of teaching professionalism, content quality, and globally appropriate wines. As a current DipWSET Candidate, I am experiencing the quality of teaching and the structured and regimented course plan that we are on. I would highly recommend Fine Vintage Ltd. for your WSET wine education needs.

I chose Fine Vintage because they select top industry instructors who are relevant and relatable, the course work is well organized and clearly defined, the access to information is easy, and most importantly, those at Fine Vintage sincerely want to see you pass your course. Highly recommend!

ROGER TIAN
The Fine Vintage WSET Diploma Course is absolutely amazing. The awesome team of instructors, including 3 MWs and 3 MW candidates, give me a lot of inspiration and help me to broaden my horizon of world wine businesses. Hundreds of elaborately selected benchmark wines and premium wines from around the world help to tune my sensory memory and tasting skills as well as tempt me to explore the wine world further. Visiting the beautiful Okanagan appellation is also memorable and give me a lot of fun. I enjoy studying here!

I would highly recommend the Fine Vintage WSET Diploma program to anyone with a passion for wine, whether it’s a personal interest or you’re looking to advance your career within the wine industry. I chose Fine Vintage for the calibre of their instructors, the extra instruction time that they give for theory and tasting (well above WSET minimum standards), and their high pass rates. The instructors are dedicated to helping you pass your exams and offer invaluable insight into exam preparation and technique.
