Ever since the Association was formed fifty years ago wine education has been at the forefront of our activities. We are the leading provider of WSET courses in our region, offering the full range of awards right up to and including Diploma with Honours. We train 100 or more people every year and our students achieve excellent results, often gaining prizes and scholarships.
We pride ourselves on the calibre of our lecturers who include many Masters of Wine and experts in their field. Courses are held in Bristol but can also be arranged anywhere in the southwest if sufficient numbers can be gathered in one location.
