New WSET Course Dates and Some Tastings

You may have noticed that we’ve released our second lot of course dates for 2010.

The WSET Foundation course will be run on Saturday 17 April. The course runs from 9am and the day wraps up around 5pm. The course fee of $200 includes lunch – as well as the study guide, study notes, the exam and the wines tasted.

Registrations for this course close on Monday 5 April, but, as the class size is limited to 12, we recommend registering sooner rather than later.

The WSET Intermediate course will start on Saturday 1 May. We start with a full day on the Saturday and complete the course with 5 sessions of 2 and a half hours on Monday evenings. The final session will be on Monday 31 May. The exam will be held at the end of this class. During the course we will taste around 50 wines from all over the world. The course fee is $650.

You can sign up for Foundation here, and Intermediate here.

We’re running the courses again at the Edinburgh Hotel and Cellars in Mitcham. It’s a great venue and, if you want to check it out (and taste some wine!) prior, they’re currently holding tastings in the Cellars on Saturday afternoons from 1pm to 5pm.

This weekend (Saturday 20 February) they are featuring two Tasmanian wineries, Moorilla Estate and Joseph Chromy.

Next weekend (Saturday 27 February) you have a chance to taste wines from Austria, as well as meet winemaker Bert Salomon.

Time Running Out to Register for WSET Foundation Course

Seasons greetings from Wine Academy!

We hope everyone had a relaxing Christmas and still has some energy left to welcome in the New Year in style!

If anyone does have a New Year’s resolution to learn more about wine, our WSET Foundation Course would be an excellent way to tick it off the list in January.  You’ll have to book your place quickly, though, as registrations close at 5pm (Adelaide time) on Monday 4 January.  There are still places left, but the class size is strictly limited to 12 students, maximum.  You can sign up online here.
