WSET( Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET®) qualification.
We run accredited wine courses in conjunction with our partners at Tindal Wine Merchant enabling our customers the opportunity to embark on furthering their knowledge of wine through the internationally recognised WSET( Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET®) qualification.
Find the course that suits you, from Level 2 where you’ll gain knowledge of the principal and regionally important grape varieties of the world, the regions in which they are grown, and the styles of wine they produce. Through a combination of tasting and theory, you’ll explore the factors that impact style and quality and learn how to describe these wines with confidence. To a more in depth Level 3 course for those seeking to delve deeper into the world of wines, this qualification provides a detailed understanding of grape growing and wine making. Upon completion you will be able to assess wines accurately, and use your understanding to confidently explain wine style and quality. Each level is designed to create new ways of thinking about and enjoying your wine.
Through our education partners Tindal Wine we are offering online the Level 2 in Wines over five evenings. There will be 12 wines tasted throughout the course. These will be sent out with the course materials before the commencement date. Course cost is €450. This includes wines, glasses, study pack and the exam fee.

Harriet Tindal MW
Harriet Tindal MW has been teaching WSET courses since 2005 when she became a Programme Provider in East Anglia before returning to Ireland where she heads up Education at Tindal Wine Merchants. Having completed all the WSET qualifications including the Diploma in 2008, Harriet became a Master of Wine in 2019. Recognising the need to bring her subject alive, real life stories taken from her many trips to wine regions across the globe, are integrated into the courses.
“Overall very informative and practical with a well produced textbook and a very knowledgeable tutor. A must for anyone with an interest in wine”
“Great credit should go to both Harriet and her able assistant William who were approachable and very helpful in relation to all aspects of the course”
(WSET Level 2 course)
“I thoroughly enjoyed the class with Harriet. She was very professional and organized. Harriet’s teaching is impeccable. Most importantly she was able to create an atmosphere where everyone felt free to ask any question, no matter how silly, and we were able to discuss it as a group. Her passion for wine really came through and it really infected all of us. It was so much fun and I was so sad when the course had finished. I will be back for the next level!”
“I recently attended the WSET Level 2 Award in Wine and Spirits course with tutor Harriet Tindal. Not coming from the trade but having great interest in the world of wine Harriet has brought my understanding of wine to a new level. I would highly recommend this course and Harriet’s exceptional skills in teaching to anyone wanting to further their knowledge of the wines and spirits of the world. I would like to thank Harriet for preparing me to take the next step in my wine journey which is the WSET Level 3 Award in Wines and Spirits.”
“WSET level 2 with Harriet Tindal of Tindal Wine Merchants was a fantastic course. The number of participants was limited and the delivery of the course was second to none. Taking part in the course to further my own personal knowledge has just encouraged me to pursue this further. The selection of wines in the Tastings was excellent and Harriett’s knowledge of all regions was exceptional. I could not recommend taking any of the courses with Tindal Wine Merchants highly enough”.
