Toronto School of Management launches Wine and Spirits Education course

The Toronto School of Management (TSoM) is delighted to announce that it will soon be inaugurating a new course in the Hospitality sector, the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits.

The course will take place in November 2018 and span over three Saturdays, with an overall duration of 20 hours. The program is a beginner to intermediate qualification exploring wines and spirits, and it is ideal for wine enthusiasts as well as those aspiring to join the industry.

Students who attend the course should expect to:

Understand how wine is made;
Explore major grape varieties and key wine-growing regions;
Consider the vineyard and winery factors that influence the style of wines;
Learn what classifications and other labelling terms mean;
Develop assessment and description skills as you sample wines, sparkling wines, fortified wines, spirits and liqueurs;
Understand and be able to apply basic principles of wine storage, service and food and wine pairing;
How to describe wine using the WSET Level 2 Systematic Approach to Tasting Wine® (SAT).
In order to successfully complete the course, students will be expected to take a 50-question multiple-choice exam, in which they should achieve at least 55% to pass. They will then receive a WSET certificate and lapel pin, and they will also be able to use the associated WSET certified logo.

Ehsan Safdari, Managing Director of TSoM, has said, “We are very excited to launch this new course for our students. It will be a great opportunity for wine lovers all over the world to partake in a unique learning experience with our school.”
