At each session there will be a lineup of wines to highlight the learning objectives, with over 50 wines to be tasted from many countries and grape varieties during the course.

There is no prerequisite to attend the Level 2 Award in Wines, although we recommend that students should have acquired some basic knowledge before attending the course (perhaps gained from Level 1 Award in Wines or attending some of our Tutored Tastings or Workshops).
