The Advanced Course – International Wines is a standardised qualification in the area of “global wines“. It covers the most important wine regions of the world as well as all wine styles including sparkling and fortified wines. Students are taught to critically understand and evaluate international wines. It has been designed as a residential course in the heart of the Rheingau wine region open to allow educational tastings and visits to wineries.

Successful graduates of this course (incl. the WSET Level 3 exam) may then continue with the WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines - Central Europe, WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines - International or WSET Level 4 Diploma in Wines - Rheingau/Burgenland/Alto Adige/Zurich, which concludes with an international trade qualification known in Austria and associated centres as “Weinakademiker“.
