Wine Academy now offering WSET courses

Here at Wine Academy we were very excited to receive our Approved Program Provider (APP) status from the WSET.  This means that we are now able to teach the WSET’s Foundation and Intermediate courses in Adelaide!

The WSET (Wine & Spirits Education Trust) was founded in London in 1969 and has become the world’s foremost wine and spirits education body.  The courses are highly regarded world wide and provide both consumers and industry with a structured and methodical approach to wine education and appreciation.

In order to deliver the courses in metropolitan Adelaide, we’re thrilled to have join forces with the Edinburgh Hotel and Cellars in Mitcham.  Our first Foundation Course is running on Saturday 29 August, from 9am.

The course fee of $200 includes study guide, exam, light lunch and, of course, all wines tasted.

If you’re interested  in wine and want to learn more, this is a fun way to spend a day!  The fact that you’ll also come away with an internationally recognised qualification is just a bonus!

Find out more about the Foundation Course or sign up now!

Edinburgh Cellars Shiraz Challenge

This year’s Edinburgh Cellars Shiraz Challenge takes off tomorrow (Sunday 28 June) at 11am, running through to 4pm.

Tickets are $30 at the door and include a glass and a $5 purchase rebate. It’s probably a little late now to think about booking for lunch at the pub, but that’s no excuse not to turn up. There will be about 300 Shirazes available to taste – and if you vote for your favourite wine there’s a chance to win a bottle of every wine on tasting.

Wine Tasting at Holdfast Bay Community Centre

Our inaugural tasting is to be held at the Holdfast Bay Community Centre on Thursday 9 July 2009, running from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.

Tickets are just $15 for our first event in Adelaide! Strictly limited to 12 places and over-18s only.
Book now using our cart below (payment by PayPal) or call Alex on 0414 562 859 to reserve a place!

At this tasting we’ll cover seven wines from local wineshops. If you find yourself always buying the same one or two wines, or only buying the weekly specials, this tasting is for you. We’ll taste wines a little out of the ordinary (across a range of price points) and discuss appropriate food matches.

The Holdfast Bay Community Centre is at 51 King George Avenue, Hove, SA, 5048. The tasting will be held in the Children’s Area.
