WSET® Level 3
Advanced Certificate in Wines and Spirits

L’Academie du Vin Tokyo is delighted to offer an English language course leading to the internationally-recognised UK Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET®)’s Advanced Certificate examination. The course, which is accompanied by the excellent book Exploring the World of Wines & Spirits, is designed to provide comprehensive coverage of wines and spirits and will take you on a whirlwind tour of the world of wine as well as providing insights into tasting technique and how wine is made. Lessons are each two hours long and include a lecture on each particular region and a tasting of six specially selected wines featuring some of the top producers. The course comprises 11 lessons running from April to September followed by the Level 3 Advanced Certificate exam.
The course should appeal to both those with a serious interest in wine who are potentially looking to pursue their studies to WSET® Diploma level and beyond - and equally to those simply looking for something tangible to show for all the empty bottles!
L’Academie du Vin recognises that students have hectic schedules and may have to miss certain lessons, so if you are unable to attend a particular session, provided that you advise the school in advance, you are entitled to retake that lesson during the next instalment of the course. By the same token it is absolutely fine to start a course halfway through - you simply take the lessons that you have missed when the course re-runs.
