WSET Classes

wine_spiritThe Chopping Block partners with
Fine Vintage, Ltd. to bring the prestigious Wine &
Spirit Education Trust (WSET) to Chicago.

The WSET is the "gold standard" in wine education, offering
certification courses that are recognized around the world as formal
qualifications in wine. The UK-based WSET runs courses
in 55 countries and has appointed Fine Vintage to provide the courses in Chicago.

If you are interested in expanding your wine knowledge while gaining the ability to converse, serve and shop for wine with confidence, you will receive a first class experience of expert instruction and exceptional wines.

James Cluer, one of only 312 Masters of Wine in the world and only 38 in North America, is the founder of Fine Vintage and has put together a team of the most knowledgeable wine experts in the United States.

Class fee includes all textbooks, wine tasting glasses, course materials, wine samples throughout the course and the WSET exam. Bookings for Level 1 and Level 2 courses at The Chopping Block are now being accepted online.
