WSET Courses

Become a Wine buff at Avenue!

We are thrilled to announce that our Head Sommelier, Agustin Trapero (WSET Diploma Holder), will now be hosting WSET Level 1 courses at Avenue.

These courses will enable not only people looking to work in the hospitality industry but they give everyone an opportunity to learn a bit more about wine, how wine is made, which grape varietals they prefer and most importantly, to have the confidence and knowledge to be able to choose a nice bottle of wine, whether it be out for dinner with friends or to enjoy at home.

Our first course will commence on Monday 10th September, 9:30am-4:30pm. We have a maximum capacity of each people per course and a minimum of 5 must be signed up for the course to take place.

Price: £145 per person
