WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits - Rheingau / Burgenland / Alto Adige / Zurich
The WSET Diploma in Wines and Spirits is globally the most recognized professional qualification in the international wine trade and also recommended by the Institute of Masters of Wine as preparation for entrance in the Masters of Wine (MW) study programme. The syllabus covers the wine countries of the world and the most important wines and spirits. This qualification offered by the British Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) is established in more than 20 countries from - London to New York, from Oslo to Tokyo.
This particular WSET Diploma is special in many respects. Block sessions will be held in all these wine countries and there will be an additional emphasis on their wine growing regions through wine study trips and tastings. This offers a great opportunity to learn about international wines and spirits combined with practical firsthand experience in the areas of viticulture and winemaking.
Another difference to WSET Diploma courses in other countries is the fact that the graduates of this course are awarded the prestigious title “Weinakademiker”. Upon completion of a thesis and a viva-voce exam, successful graduates are requested to sign a code of conduct and join the international alumni association with more than 750 graduates from 36 different countries.
