Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) was founded in 1969 to serve the growing educational needs of the UK wine and spirits industry. As recognition grew for WSET qualifications it gradually expanded access to qualifications abroad.
By the end of the 1990’s WSET qualifications were available in the UK, Europe, the USA, the Middle East and Asia.
Today WSET qualifications are available in over 70 countries.
WSET qualifications are globally recognised as the international standard in wine and spirit knowledge. They are designed for those who are just starting out in their careers, as well as established professionals, and the many enthusiasts who have a passion for wines and spirits.
