Whether you’re a novice or knowledgeable, mad for Merlot or puzzled
by Pinot, the world of wine is one that’s ripe for discovery.
Having awarded over 400,000 wine lovers one of its qualifications in the UK
alone since it was founded in 1969, the Wine & Spirit Education
Trust, the largest global provider of wine and spirits qualifications, is
celebrating its milestone 50th anniversary with the first-ever global
WSET Wine Education Week.
The week, taking place from 9 – 15 September 2019, celebrates the diversity, taste and culture of the world of wine with a programme of interactive events, all of which are focused on learning about and enjoying wines from across the globe.
