So I’m going back to school.
For some people, this may be enough. It’s a reasonably high level of knowledge and would serve one well in the wine industry.
But for myself, I feel… uneasy.
The Next Stage
So I have signed up for the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines and Spirits.
Amongst other things, it entails a further two years of guided study.
Over the next two years we will be covering the following in detail:
- Unit 1 – The Global Business of Alcoholic Beverages
- Unit 2 – Wine Production
- Unit 3 – Light Wines of the World
- Unit 4 – Spirits of the World
- Unit 5 – Sparkling Wines of the World
- Unit 6 – Fortified (Liqueur) Wines of the World
It doesn’t look like much, but it’s quite comprehensive… and I will have to pass all of these units in order to earn this diploma.
A Raison D’être
I’m not without my doubts. Two years is a large commitment, not to mention the monetary cost of the entire course.
Quite simply, I believe this is the next step in order for me to achieve the same.
So let’s see where this path takes me. I look forward to sharing my experience with you right here.
