The Level 1 introductory course offers a well-rounded introduction to wine, major wines of the world, and food and wine pairing principles.  Consider this class if you are relatively new to wine and would like to expand your knowledge, especially tasting skills, and move to the next level.  By the end of the course, you’ll be able to taste wine using a systematic approach to tasting and be able to identify the main styles of wine.  

The course will be based around a four-week, five module online learning program with educator support available for this time. The course modules should be followed in sequential order during this four-week window. The course material should take about six hours in total to complete, plus revision time. Regular access and participation in the course online activities is essential for this mode of study. The course prepares the student for the qualifications and they are guided by a WSET educator. The student can contact the educator any time for the duration of the scheduled course, should they have any questions. Each module includes a series of independent activities to help students understand the differences between grape varieties and types and styles of wine. Students should be advised to taste a range of wines during their studies. All the required wines for the course can be found in the online equipment list.  Any additional wines can be found in the Specification.  Students can post their tasting notes in the Online Classroom for review by the educator.

Recommended wine tasting samples will be available at Corvina for retail purchase at a discounted rate for WSET students.  Additionally, students will be offered a discounted wine tasting flight at Corvina Wine Bar to practice tasting with the Level 1 systematic approach.  A list of recommended wines for WSET L1 wine is available in the specification and will be sent with registration.
