Tenute Rubino to host WSET Level 3

Organized by Wine Academy Italia, the prestigious international wine qualification will be hosted in Puglia for the first time

Enoturismo - Tenute Rubino


To say wine is to say, above all, culture. As if studying a unique world encyclopaedia, learning about wine means coming to know about all the different areas of production, the numerous native varieties, different farming and winemaking practices and how each play a role in shaping the finished product. A vast and complex field that requires specific training for those who want to become professionals in this sector while those who already are find they need to constantly update and advance their learning. A commitment and effort shared by Tenute Rubino, who is preparing to host for the first time in Puglia the prestigious WSET Level 3 course, organized by Wine Academy Italia and scheduled for the coming 5-11 of February. As usual, one of the key aspects that makes WSET training special is the choice of venues, as courses are hosted by prestigious and dynamic production realities for whom quality is at the heart of their wine making philosophy.

WSET Level 3 is an advanced level qualification, one of the certifications issued by the London Wine & Spirit Education Trust, the most authoritative institute dedicated to wine education, and is the last fundamental step before the WSET 4 Diploma, a qualifying equivalent to a university degree obtained after several years of exams and training. The diploma also makes holders eligible to apply for an International Master of Wine qualification.

The course held in Tenute Rubino’s headquarters in Brindisi will be conducted entirely in English and will be attended by a limited number of participants led by teachers of great international experience. The third level of the WSET will be oriented towards developing a global vision of the wine world, favouring an approach to wine and spirits that goes beyond the acquisition of merely theoretical skills. To apply, candidates must hold the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits or be able to demonstrate the equivalent level of knowledge. The course is divided into two Units, the 5-day class will explore location – from France to Italy, through continents such as Australia, North and South America – grape growing, winemaking, maturation and bottling; lastly, the course will focus on how to taste wines, describe their characteristics and evaluate their quality.

Participants will learn how to apply their understanding to explain wine style and quality and perfect their working knowledge of professional English.

Throughout the course, lunches will be offered by Numero Primo, Tenute Rubino’s wine bar and eatery located on the seafront Regina Margherita of Brindisi, a superb winter menu made from strictly local fresh ingredients.
