WSET Diploma in Wines (Level 4) Classes2019-11-01T14:43:40-05:00

The WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines* is the highest certification offered by the WSET. The Diploma is comprised of 6 Units, and it can take 2-3 years to complete the full program. The WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines is the WSET’s flagship qualification, designed to prepare those in the trade for senior positions within the wines business. This qualification is also suitable for the dedicated wine enthusiast wishing to build on knowledge gained at Level 3 and acquire further expertise in wine tasting. The course of study will not only develop product knowledge to a specialist level, but will also enable students to acquire skills that will continue to be of use beyond the course. Please note, students must have passed the WSET Level 3 exam in order to register for the Diploma program.

The Diploma in Wine program begins with Unit D1, Wine Production. Every Diploma student must take the Unit D1 course and exam before moving on to other Diploma Units. The Capital Wine School typically offers the Unit D1 course and exam twice each year. Currently scheduled courses and exams for Unit D1 can be found here.

After taking the Unit D1 exam, Diploma students take the remaining units in any order they choose. The Capital Wine School does recommend that Unit #3 be a student’s final unit, however.

The Capital Wine School offers both in-class and online courses. All exams must be taken in person at the Capital Wine School.
