This 5-class course will be held at Capital Wine School on the following dates: October 12, October 19, October 26, November 2, and November 9 with exam on November 16.  Each class meets from 6:30 p.m. until 9:30 p.m.  The exam also begins at 6:30 p.m.

The aim of the course is to focus on the key grape varieties and regions of the world, as well as principal varieties of spirits. While the course provides an overview of the wines and spirits of the world, including main wine grapes and regions, it also covers factors affecting wine quality and style, grape growing, and basic winemaking practices. The course emphasizes tasting assessment and the skills required to describe the aromas and tastes of wine. It helps to develop fundamental tasting and assessment skills. During each session of the class, students taste 8-9 wines. The exam takes 1 hour and consists of 50 multiple choice questions. Those who pass the exam receive the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits, an internationally recognized credential in the wine industry.

The course fee includes the 5 classes at Capital Wine School; PDF copies of the class lectures; the WSET course book, study guide, and guide to the systematic approach to tasting wine; practice quizzes; 40 different wines; and the exam at Capital Wine School.

Note: This is a structured educational class with seated tastings and classroom style lectures.
