|To get the most from wine, whether you are a keen wine lover, joining the trade, work in the hospitality industry or are progressing in your career ... you need to have a grounding in why wines taste how they do, which wine is best suited to any particular occasion and how to evaluate and judge different wines.
We are an Approved Progamme Provider for the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) which is the only wine & spirit education organisation approved by the UK government as a national awarding body of vocational qualifications.
The next WSET Wine courses planned are:
Level 1 Monday 6th June.
Level 2 on three consecutive Mondays starting 20th June.
Level 3 on six consecutive Mondays starting 19th September concluding with the examination on 24th October.
We're very proud to be sponsors of this year's 1066 Wine and Food Festival., showcasing all that is great about the food and wine offering here in 1066 Country, Sussex and Kent - the area where we provide training and guidance for those working with wine or those with a keen interest.
The Festival will run from the opening with wine critic and TV presenter Jilly Goolden on Saturday 14th May in historic Battle Abbey, a Food and Drink Fair in the De La Warr Pavilion on Sunday 22nd and a grand finale in St Mary in the Castle on Bank Holiday Sunday 29th.
