WSET Level 3 Wine Certification Course

Taught by Dilek Caner, Master of Wine

Level 3 is an advanced survey course designed for students who already possess a basic grasp of the world’s major wine grapes, appellations, regions and wine labeling.  This course examines the major wine varietals and regions in-depth, including the underlying causes for the wines’ characteristics.  Level 3 also exposes the student to lesser-known regions.  Viticulture, vinification, product pricing/differentiation and packaging aspects for wine and spirits are covered.  Developing a sound tasting technique is a major focus for this course with instruction on a systematic approach to tasting included in every session.  A graduate of Level 3 will have improved their ability to speak authoritatively about wine regions and characteristics and advise others on wine selection and pairing.

WSET recommends fifty-six hours of self-study in addition to class time for this course.  At the end of the course, the WSET Level 3 Certificate is presented to the candidates who successfully complete a multiple choice examination, several short essay questions, and a blind tasting examination.

On the following weekends between 9:30 am - 1:30 pm: 

September 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29, October 5, 6 / 2019 (On October 6, the class will be from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm).
