The aim of the course is to focus on the key grape varieties and regions of the world. While the course provides an overview of the wines and spirits of the world, including main wine grapes and regions, it also covers factors affecting wine quality and style, grape growing, and basic winemaking practices. The course emphasizes tasting assessment and the skills required to describe the aromas and tastes of wine. It helps to develop fundamental tasting and assessment skills. Each day, students will taste approximately 14 wines. The exam takes 1 hour and consists of 50 multiple choice questions. Those who pass the exam receive the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits, an internationally recognized credential in the wine industry.

The course fee includes the classes at Capital Wine School; the WSET course book, study guide, and guide to the systematic approach to tasting wine; tasting of approximately 40 different wines; and the exam at Capital Wine School.
