Vinosity has partnered with the International Wine Education Centre to provide a twist on the internationally-recognised WSET's Level 1 wine education course. This one-day course is an ideal starting point for wine enthusiasts wanting to get to grips with the basics.

In a short space of time, you’ll find yourself feeling much more confident tasting wine, navigating a wine list or buying bottles.

This premium course is provided by the IWEC, presented by Andrew Shelly DipWSET, and will take place at Vinosity one of the renovated industrial shops situated at 44 Stanley, Milpark in Johannesburg.

Attendees will taste an impressive selection of exceptional wines, before finishing the day with a 30-question multiple-choice test with a WSET certificate and lapel pin for successful candidates.

We will start with morning pastries, enjoy canapés and lunch created by La Pergola and finally we follow the test with a Champagne reception.

You will learn:

About Sparkling, Still and Fortified wine styles

The most popular grapes and the wines they produce

From tutored tasting 14 premium local and imported wines 

How to store and serve wine

How to describe wine using the WSET Level 1 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® (SAT)

By the end of the day you’ll be able to taste wine using a globally recognised approach, identify key styles of wine and the characteristics of important grape varieties. You’ll also gain first hand experience of the key principles of food and wine pairing and how to apply these to your own food and wine choices.

This course will run over consecutive evenings, from 4-8pm on Friday and Saturday 21st/22nd June
