With the continued and overwhelming success of our Wine Courses, and with Pass rates significantly exceeding the WSET ® Global Average, Fine Wine Works are now in their 8th year as an Approved Programme Provider for the Wine & Spirit Education Trust. Operating since 1969, WSET is the largest global provider of qualifications in the field of wines and spirits and have a strong reputation in the yachting and maritime industry. In the last academic year (2015/16), almost 63,000 people sat for a WSET qualifiation in 19 languages in 70 countries!
FWW were also the 1st in the Mediterranean to achieve full Accreditation by the PYA for its Bartending & Mixology Courses.
Based on the Cote D'Azur, FWW offer wine training to all levels, ranging from the WSET® Level 1 Award in Wines (Foundation) up to the comprehensive and challenging WSET® Level 3 Award (Advanced) plus 1 and 3 day PYA G.U.E.S.T. Advanced Bartending & Mixology Courses.
We run both our Wine and Bartending & Mixology courses either at our Villa in the hills behind Nice (Vence) in Palma, Mallorca, or on board your Yacht, depending on Crew numbers and logistical requirements. We are also happy to tailor-make a Wine Course to suit everybody (not just for Stewardesses, Captains and Chefs!) and will travel from La Spezia in Italy to Marseille in France and anywhere in between (Cannes, Golfe Juan, Antibes, Nice & Monaco.) We aim to make learning about wine as educational, entertaining and convenient as possible for all wanting to learn!
FWW is proud to be a part of the PYA (Professional Yachting Association) and are involved in their ground-breaking initiative (G.U.E.S.T.) to standardise Interior training (including Wine & Cocktails). All courses are conducted in ENGLISH
