Unit D1: Wine Production (5 weeks of guided study)

This unit focuses on viticulture, vinification, maturation, and bottling.

You will learn what the vine requires to produce grapes for wine production, grape growing, winemaking, and post-fermentation options and how this influences style, quality, and price. This unit must be taken before attempting any other Diploma course. This course provides the foundation needed for taking D3, D4, and D5. This unit is assessed by a 90-minute multiple-part open-response exam. Once you are registered for an exam, there are no-refunds.

Cost $1250

This cost includes the 3-year registration fee required for the WSET, online tuition and  study materials, access to the WSET tutors, 24/7 access to the on-line classroom, a 100 question multiple-choice practice test (on-line with immediate feedback results), and the exam at the Capital Wine School.
