Description

Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) provides best-in-class education and qualifications to inspire and empower the world’s wine and spirits professionals and enthusiasts. WSET offers a comprehensive suite of qualifications covering wines, spirits and sake.

East London Wine School is one of the largest Approved Programme Providers for WSET qualifications in London.

These qualifications are ideal for both professionals and enthusiasts: Sam, the owner of East London Wine School started at Level 1 in Wines whilst working in the Banking Industry – she loved it! She then progressed to Level, 2 and 3 finally gaining Level 4 the Diploma Level and is now one of the WSET Certified Educators at East London Wine School. But you don’t have to change your career, you can just do these qualifications for fun, to meet like-minded people, to increase your wine knowledge, vocabulary and confidence.
