Back in 1969, the Wine & Spirit Education Trust opened in London with the sole purpose of training folks to understand and appreciate the work of vintners and distillers. The operation quickly went international, and today represents the standard in wine education.
More recently, in 2010, Vinoscenti opened up its doors and uncorked its first bottle. Their goal: to deliver the WSET curriculum in a fun and engaging way—and in Mandarin Chinese. The instructors at Vinoscenti also teach in English, cultivating knowledge and appreciation for everyone from complete beginners to restaurant professionals and expert sommeliers. It all starts in the WSET Level 1 class, which introduces fundamental topics including wine storage, food pairing, and a systematic tasting approach. Vinoscenti focuses on these sort of certification classes, though their experts also host themed wine events and even take groups on international wine tours.
