"I loved the SWS, I thought the course book was excellent and provided a good mix of history with the detail of the country’s regions. The book was a lot more in depth than the WSET level 3 course and provided much more detail on each region, covering more grape varieties as well as the viniculture and vinification techniques. I certainly learned a lot from this course."
