The best place to learn more about wine – WSET


If you’ve ever wanted to do a foundation course on wine but weren’t sure where to go – well this is the place. Actually, you don’t even necessarily have to go there as you could start with the ‘Make Time for Wine Online Course’. The WSET was set up to train the wine trade, but it is also open to members of the public who are not in the trade but just fancy learning more about wine. A few of my non-trade mates have done the Foundation Certificate and have never looked back. Here I talk to my old boss, Ian Harris about the WSET.

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.
