Virtual Tasting Premier Host
The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is intend-ed for people who have little or no prior knowledge of wines.
It is designed to provide a sound but simple introduction to wines. The qualification will assist those who need a basic fa-miliarity with the main types and styles of wines, for example people who work with wines as part of a larger beverage portfolio in the retail and hospitality sectors.
Successful candidates will know the key stages in grape growing and winemak-ing, list the principal types, and styles of wine, state the key characteristics of wines made from the principal grape varieties as well as other examples of wines, and know the key principles involved in the storage and service of wine.
They will consequently be able to answer customer queries and provide recommendations for the service of wine.
