JN Wine is accredited to run the (WSET) courses. The WSET courses provide nationally-recognised qualifications for Wine Industry professionals and enthusiastic amateurs. The courses are all examined and certificated within a QCA-approved National Qualifications Framework.

WSET courses are the backbone of the wine industry in the UK and Ireland and a must for anybody considering joining it. They provide a set of courses that are nationally and internationally recognised. 

WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is run as a one day course. It bridges the gap between the public and the wine trade. No previous experience of Wine Tasting is necessary to register on this course.

This course is also a good introductory first course for the wine enthusiast who wishes to study in a structured way: the qualification will cover skills such as identifying wine styles, practice of storing and serving wine, and food and wine matching.

The WSET Level 1 Award in Wines is intended to establish the basic skills and product knowledge required in the service and retail of wine; it is ideal for preparing a person for their first job in hospitality or retail.
