WSET Level 2 Intensive

A Beginner - Intermediate Level Qualification


Intensive Wine Course

Do you struggle to find time to take your certification? We offer an intensive version of the WSET Level 2 Award in wines over a weekend. The WSET Level 2 Intensive courses take place over two days. You will discover the main wine regions around the world and the grape varieties that are grown there. The intensive format does not impact the quality of the program, and the tasting sessions maintain a friendly atmosphere.

This course can be financed by votre compte formation (CPF).


The WSET 2 is designed for beginners who aim to develop an expertise in wine. After two days of intensive training, you will be able to work in the wine sector. This program is also intended for people who wish to undertake a professional reconversion.

  • How wine is made
  • What factors influence wine style
  • The key white and black grape varieties and their characteristics
  • The important wine-producing regions where these grapes are grown

How do WSET Level 2 Intensive classes work?

WSET 2 includes 28 hours of study, including 18 hours in the classroom with certified trainers. Our two-day course takes place over the weekend with nine hours in class per day, including the exam. Study material will be given to you upon registration, to get you prepared for your session. The material contains the essential points covered during the training, as well as tasting grids and self-assessment exercises. 

You will taste 56 wines produced in the most prominent winegrowing regions in the world, from France to Chile via the United States, Italy, Spain and Australia, including six wines from the Burgundy region.

Evaluation And Certification

At the end of the 18 hour course, you will be evaluated on the knowledge acquired during a closed book test. You will need to answer 50 multiple-choice questions in one hour. To graduate, you will have to answer 55% of the questions correctly and you will receive a WSET 2 certificate by post.

What are the course entry requirements?

There are no entry requirements for this qualification, but you must be over 18 years old. The sessions are held in small groups of maximum 14 students. At least 12 hours of self-study is required to pass your exam successfully. All our courses are available in French and in English.
