We are all on our own wine journey so if you are new to the wine industry or would like to give yourself a better understanding of the world of wine, Level 2 is for you. For Cellar Door staff across Tasmania, Level 2 gives you the skills to explain why the wines here are so different to in the hotter regions of Australia and help your international visitors understand our unique regional styles.

For those in bottle shops and restaurants, Level 2 helps you and your customers make sense of the vast range of wines available. Whether they are choosing something for dinner or a gift for a friend, you will be the right person to assist them.

“I recently completed the Level 3 WSET with educator Curly Haslam-Coates.  Coming from a grape and wine research background, I found the course incredibly informative and educational.  The course content was current, relevant and perfect for my level of knowledge with my previous experience.  The course delivery by Curly was in a relaxed and fun learning environment.  The constant justification of our comments was an effective learning method, which reinforced the objective systematic approach to tasting, rather than standard subjective tasting.  I have been able to use this tasting method in my research, and have found it particularly useful with sparkling wines and Pinot Noir, which display a wide range of styles.  The background knowledge of the wines and spirits of the world has reinforced my knowledge base and has enabled me to better engage with industry and to apply this knowledge to my research.”-Dr Fiona Kerslake, Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture
