When embarking on your wine education journey, you might find yourself torn between starting with WSET Level 1 or jumping straight into Level 2. While it is not mandatory to complete Level 1 before progressing to Level 2, there are a few considerations that can help guide your decision.

WSET Level 1 in Wines

WSET Level 1 in Wines is a beginner’s course designed to introduce the main types and styles of wine, basic wine tasting skills, and principles of food and wine pairing. This course is a great place to start if you are a complete novice, or if your experience with wine is limited to enjoying a glass or two with meals.

One of the highlights of our Level 1 course is our enjoyable food and wine pairing exercise. This hands-on learning experience not only makes the course fun but also aids in cementing the principles you’ve learned in a practical, memorable way.

WSET Level 2 in Wines

On the other hand, WSET Level 2 in Wines is an intermediate level course that delves into more specific details about different grape varieties, wine regions, and wine-making processes. The course requires more commitment in terms of reading and study hours, but it’s ideal if you already have some foundational knowledge and are eager to explore the world of wines more deeply.

Remember, at Florida Wine Academy, your learning path is about what best suits you and your experiences. Our commitment is to guide you through your journey, providing the right environment for you to deepen your understanding, passion, and expertise in wines.
