WSET® Level 3 Award in Wines

998,00

The Advanced Wine Diploma provides the real wine lover with an in-depth learning forum, starting with an exquisite selection of top wines from Bordeaux and Burgundy, among others. Top wines are served, and the knowledge of viticulture and winemaking is further deepened, visiting all the major wine regions worldwide.

In this course the knowledge level shifts  to an analytical level. The advanced exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions, 5 open questions and a tasting exam, in which two wines must be explained. If successful, the international Advanced Wine Diploma of the WSET will be awarded, from which a training to become a Dutch vinologist or the internationally highly regarded Diploma Course training can be followed.

We look forward to welcoming you to the first reception with a glass of champagne!
