The London-based Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET®) was founded in 1969 to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits. Over the years, WSET® has grown into the most prominent international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a set of qualifications recognized all over the world.
WSET® is represented in 66 countries worldwide. Their qualifications are currently available in 19 different languages. Over 61,000 students sat WSET examinations in the last academic year.
The right step to strengthen your wine knowledge:
Over the past 10 years, the Chinese wine market has been growing immensely with new labels, grape varieties and producing regions. To underpin your knowledge with accurate information and increase your wine service skills, EMW organizes accredited WSET training programs. Our programs, from foundational level up to a more advanced and specialized level, will help you acquire professional wine knowledge. The programs will introduce you to the market’s new requirements. Thanks to the WSET training programs, you will be able to sustain your passion for wines and spirits with an in-depth knowledge. The courses are provided in Mandarin and in English and the examination can be taken in both languages.
Qualification objective of the WSET program:
EMW’s WSET programs are tailored to the wine professional’s needs: acquiring a high level of product knowledge and understanding in handling international wines and spirits. EMW will allow you to greatly increase your wine knowledge and become a wine expert.
Our courses are organized for groups limited to a certain number of participants in order to keep it friendly and personal. Wine enthusiasts are more than welcome to join in and deepen their wine knowledge.
Many attendees from international five star hotels and high-end restaurants have already successfully passed the exam and became certificated wine experts. Attending our comprehensive training was greatly beneficial for these participants. The training program provided many opportunities to review key points and exchange experiences with peers and customers. The WSET has boosted their confidence, making them more efficient in wine operations.
For the wine passionate who attended the program, the experience was positive as well. They were glad to have someone taking time to explain more about the diversity in grape varieties and the wine making process. Interacting with professionals was enjoyable for them, as they gained tips on how to choose their wine in restaurants. Thanks to the tasting techniques that were taught, these participants enhanced their self-confidence when talking about wines.
