WSET® Level 1 Wine Service

WSET® Level 1 Award in Wine Service
We can make anyone a great Sommelier!

PROGRAMME OBJECTIVES

In Greece there is a widespread view that the service of wine concerns only the person or persons holding the Sommelier title . Today however, the current and common  practice in the restaurant service world-wide assumes that all service personnel have knowledge at  Wine-Assistant Junior Sommelier / Commis Sommelier level and are able to provide a quality service to their customers. Bearing in mind the fact that many Greek restaurant  & hotel enterprises are not  accustomed to creating a Sommelier team, the  training of all personnel engaged in service is particularly relevant - at least at this basic level. The purpose of the programme is to promptly meet and  fulfil the needs of the customer through the correct wine service, thus supporting the employers' demands for increased sales. The programme  gives the student a clear picture of the career development potential for a  wine waiter / sommelier worldwide.

Gift : On registration our students will receive an apron and Sommelier corkscrew from our organisation!
