More Dependable Than Any Other Resource

Recognizing that there was no proper study tool or any other spirits class up to our own standards for the material covered in the WSET ® Level 1 Wine textbook, this course was developed and written by a 27-year industry veteran who has worked in many facets of the drinks industry: as a bartender and bar manager, retail wine and spirits buyer, sommelier, multi-unit corporate beverage director, wine and spirits educator. The author has also worked closely with wine, beer, and spirits manufacturers to customize styles and brands for various applications throughout the beverage industry. This class was written to help those who are sitting for the WSET ® Level 1 Wine exam to pass it; it is also an extensive resource for those not in the industry but who are passionate about wine and want to understand this comprehensive and expansive subject, better.

Brainscape’s author spent numerous hours poring over the current Level 1 Award in Wine textbook edition and broke down the content into the most convenient and digestible language possible. We then had multiple drinks industry pros proofread the flashcards to refine the content, and now you can benefit from the most comprehensive, clear study solution for the WSET® Level 1 Wine exam.
