The WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines aims to give students specialist knowledge and understanding of the core principles of production and business of wine. Diploma graduates will have the product knowledge and the analytical tasting skills to explain and evaluate wines.

Holders of the WSET Level 4 Award in Wines will be able to:

  • identify characteristics of the principal wines of the world
  • make informed assessments of a product’s quality and value
  • Identify appropriate opportunities for the products within a given market.

The Level 4 Diploma is WSET’s flagship qualification. The qualification is designed to prepare people for responsible jobs within the wine business. The course will not only develop product knowledge to a specialist level, but will also enable students to acquire skills that will continue to be of use beyond the course. The course is taught by industry experts including Masters of Wine and Diploma Graduates that have up to date knowledge of international wines.

What you will learn:

  • Wine Business 
  • Wine Production 
  • Wines of the World
