This course focuses on the factors accounting for the style, quality and price of wines from all over the world. Using the most important grape varieties in the world as a starting point, the course covers the different wine styles made with them across different regions. It includes sparkling wines, fortified wines, and a small section of spirits. We will cover France, Italy, Germany, Spain, Portugal, Hungary, New Zealand, Chile, South Africa, Argentina, the United States and Australia. Altogether we’ll try more than 45 international wines, which allows us to develop and cement a unique tasting system used to describe and evaluate wine: the WSET Level 2 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine®.
