WSET & Wine Scholar Guild
WSET qualifications are a 'must-have' for anybody seriously considering a career in the wine industry. Globally recognised, they are the bench mark in wine education, whether for the professional or enthusiastic wine lover. Learning about wine in an intensive but fun and really engaging format, has never been so fulfilling!
WSG courses offer a more focused approach into master the wines & regions of Spain, France or Italy. The course provides a wonderful deep-dive into the wines, food, history, and geology of these wonderful European countries!
"At Kent Wine School we teach people about wine by concentrating on the flavours and aromas of the wines. We focus on the taste profile of each wine explaining the characteristics of the grape variety, the climate, and the winemaking, and show you with maps and photos where they came from and how they are made. We explain why they taste like they do and ask and listen to what you think about the wines. It's all about trial and error through tasting. We love wine and want to share this with everyone!"
