Wine courses for non-wine people.

Inside Wine Video

Lucy Stevenson from the Wine & Spirit Education Trust explains that wine courses start with WSET Level 1 – which requires no prior knowledge in wine. The WSET runs  courses in over 500 centres around the world and many members of the general public as well as wine professionals have enjoyed learning about wine here. Including me!

The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) was founded in 1969 to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits. Since then, WSET has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a suite of sought-after qualifications.

The WSET works with an extensive network of over 500 third-party teaching and examination centres, known as Approved Programme Providers, in over 50 countries around the world who offer one or more of our qualifications.

I became captivated with the world of wine whilst on a visit to the Barossa Valley during my gap year in Australia. I went on to join a London wine merchant and studied wine for several years before starting my own wine business at 24. I sold the business aged 30 and went into Telecoms for 15 years, during which time I began cooking up the plan to create Mirabeau.
