Don't worry, we've been there too! Written by wine professionals who have all passed WSET Level 3 with Merit, this class will help you learn the material faster and more efficiently.

Giving You An Edge: The Best WSET Level 3 App

Brainscape's insider team of wine professionals has worked tirelessly to create the most comprehensive WSET Level 3 flashcards to prepare you for the test that’s going to clear the way for the next level in your wine education: the Diploma.

More dependable than any other resource

Recognizing that there was no proper study tool or any other wine class up to our own standards for the material covered in the WSET Level 3 textbook, this course was developed and written by three industry pros: a wine educator, a sommelier, and a brand ambassador. We combined our knowledge to write this class to help all students pass the WSET Level 3 test. The team is familiar not only with what you're expected to know for the exam but how the questions are asked. We took this test and passed, and we want to help you pass, too.

Brainscape’s wine team spent hundreds of hours poring over the current Level 3 textbook edition, researching numerous wine books, and breaking down the content into the most convenient and digestible form possible. We then had a Master Sommelier and a Master of Wine candidate scour our flashcards to refine our content, and now you can benefit from the most comprehensive, clearest study solution for the WSET Level 3 exam.

About the Content in the WSET Level 3 Course

Our WSET Level 3 course contains over 1,600 flash cards that provide an in-depth review of all major subject areas on the world of wine: Wine and Law, Viticulture, Vinification, and major winemaking regions across the globe. We’ve also included information not covered in the textbook or class: top producers, extended details on climate, soil, and regions so you gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of why wines taste the way they do.
