The Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET®) was founded in 1969 in London, England to provide high quality education and training in wines and spirits. Since then, WSET® has grown into the foremost international body in the field of wines and spirits education, with a suite of sought-after qualifications.
In addition to courses and qualifications for those in the 'trade', we have an increasing number of 'consumers', or enthusiasts, who attend courses. They may attend a course because of a wish to gain a formal qualification or simply a desire to enhance their knowledge of the ever-increasing variety of wines and spirits being produced in the world today.
WSET® works through a network of Approved Programme Providers around the world. These external Providers are rigorously checked to ensure that they deliver the high standard of teaching required to enable students to pass their WSET® qualification. Enderun Extension is proud to have Mr. Gérald Savigny of Enderun's Restaurant 101 as the first WSET® educator in the Philippines.
Whatever your level of interest, you will find it at the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, and we look forward to welcoming you onto one of our programs.
