The AccademiaVino Week: from 15 to 21 February 2021
AccademiaVino Week - 8 to 14 February 2020
AccademiaVino Week 1 to 7 February
Our activities from 25 to 31 January
The most ambitious wine education global event ever is starting.
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.
During the academic year ended on 31 July 2016, WSET Level 3 in Wines and Spirits was our most successful qualification. Between Milan and Rome, we ran an unprecedented total of eight courses.
Besides the traditional full-week intensive programme, with classes concentrated in a five-day burst starting on Monday morning and finishing Friday evening, in July we offered - for the first time ever - a course with classes spread over five consecutive Saturdays.
