The New Zealand School of Food and Wine is now offering our 12 week Professional Wine Knowledge (Sommelier) Course as a part-time option over 10 weekends.
WSET is the qualification awarding division of the London Wine & Spirit Education Trust and accredited by the British qualifications authority. These qualifications are internationally recognised and are essential for students wishing to study for the Masters of Wine.
This intensive programme offers the hospitality professional or the wine enthusiast an international qualification that provides a thorough understanding of the principle wines and spirits of the world and key factors influencing style, quality and value.
Each session you will learn about international wines from all major wine producing countries such as France, Spain, Italy, Chile and Australia through tastings and self-directed study. You will study the principles underlying food and wine matching as well as learn how Microsoft Excel can be used to present and cost wine lists and manage inventory control. There will be a visit to well-known local vineyards where you will learn about viticulture and wine making practices from highly respected wine makers.
