Every WSET Level 3 student is somewhat intimidated by the intricacies of the 1971 German wine labelling law, with the Predikat system based on the sugar content in the grape juice. Well, 50 years later, a radically new law has made the system at the same time simpler and - yes, that is possible - more complicated.
The AccademiaVino Week: from 15 to 21 February 2021
WSET study materials in English are now available as eBooks.
Traditional paper books are of course still available as well. So when you book a WSET course on our website, at checkout you will be able to choose between the two formats.
Based on the most advanced technological platform available, WSET eBooks can be marked, underlined and annotated just like a paper book.
Students taking all WSET Level 1 and Level 2 courses in Wines, Spirits and Sake now can choose between taking their exam in the traditional classroom paper format or from their own home through the new Remote Invigilation technology.
This is a huge advancement which will make life easier for many candidates, and we are currently developing an examination schedule to accommodate the needs of as many people as possible.
MignonVino™ is the new solution to the one big challenge which has so far limited the use of online wine courses: tasting. With our breakthrough method, distance tasting can now be just as accurate and valuable as during an in-person class. Not close to, exactly the same experience a physical classroom tutor-led tasting.
You know a book is good when it has a way of gliding into your everyday life and subtly changing your thought patterns almost without you realizing it. This is exactly what happens when you read Inventing Wine by Paul Lukacs. It is what happened to me, anyway. Even as I was reading it – in bits and pieces in the few moments I managed to carve out of particularly busy days – page after page I found that it just seemed natural to start quoting concepts from the book during my classes.
