This introductory level course introduces students to major wine styles, practices for proper wine storage and service, as well as  the fundamentals of food and wine pairing.

Who should attend: This course is ideal for students preparing for their first job in the wine industry or for consumers seeking a formal introduction to wine. Students with more wine experience may elect to bypass WSET Level 1 and enroll directly in WSET Level 2 Award in Wine

No prior experience or knowledge is expected for attendance in this course.
