Frequently Asked Questions

Which wine course to choose? FAQs

Which wine course is suitable for me?

It depends!

If you are looking for a professional qualification, and are willing to study and take an exam,  then WSET courses will be more suitable. These courses take a more academic approach to learning about wine.

If you want to take a more relaxed approach and learn by tasting lots of different wines with like-minded people, then the Local Wine School World of Wine course will be more suitable.
