Congratulations on deciding to undertake your WSET2 qualification.
Most people who decide to do this award have little or no previous knowledge about wine. The course seems to have changed slightly since 2019 and no longer has anything on spirits, but solely focuses on wine. The learning outcomes follow similar lines to the below:
Demonstrate a basic understanding of the factors that influence wine style.
Describe the characteristics of the principal grape varieties used in still wine production and the style and quality of wines produced from these grapes in the key wine producing countries and regions of the world.
Describe the style and quality of both still wines made from regionally important grape varieties and other regionally important named wines made in the key wine producing countries of the world.
Outline the methods used in the production of sparkling wines and describe the style of these wines produced in the key wine producing countries of the world.
Outline the methods used in the production of sweet and fortified wines and describe the style of these wines produced in the key wine producing countries of the world.
Outline key principles and methods used in the production of the principle categories of international spirits and describe the styles of spirits produced. (LIKELY NOT ON THE PURE WINE AWARD).
Demonstrate an understanding of the processes and principles involved in the storage, selection and service of wine.
