What you'll learn:

  • How to taste and describe wine using the WSET Level 2 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine®(SAT)
  • How environmental factors, grape-growing, winemaking, and maturation options influence the style and quality of wines made from eight principal grape varieties:
  • The style and quality of wines made from 22 regionally important grape varieties produced in over 70 geographical indications (GIs) around the world.
  • How grape varieties and winemaking processes influence key styles of sparkling wines and fortified wines.
  • Key labeling terms used to indicate origin, style, and quality.
