Who should consider studying for WSET Level 2? 

  • The WSET Level 2 Award in Wines  is intended as vocational training in product knowledge for those employed in the drinks industrywho have little previous knowledge of the broad range of alcoholic beverages available.

It is a natural progression for those who have attended the NottsDerby Wine School 8-Week World of Wine Course.
