Wine on Main will partner with Neptune School of Wine WSET Approved Program Provider #838 to host WSET certification courses this August! WSET is short for Wine Spirits Education & Education Trust.
Level I will take place over two evenings: Tuesday August 8 and Wednesday August 9 from 6-9pm. Details and sign-up here.
Level II will take place over two days: Saturday August 20 and Sunday August 21. Participants will be able to pick up their materials at the beginning of August to help prepare if desired. Details and sign-up here.
The Wine & Spirit Education Trust is an internationally recognized wine education program that was founded in London, England in 1969. The certifications are accepted worldwide which makes this a special opportunity and different from other wine classes. There are 5 levels in total and those who successfully complete all levels earn the coveted title of Master of Wine.
Speaking of Masters of Wine, there are only 418 of them in the world. We are lucky to welcome one of them, Lindsay Pomeroy, MW and owner of Wine Smarties, to teach us this summer. She is an excellent instructor and I am here as a WSET alumni and resource as well.
Be sure to register by June 22 for early-bird pricing.
