The Wine & Spirit Education Trust provides globally recognised education and qualifications in wines, spirits and sake, for professionals and enthusiasts.

This qualification is intended for beginners wishing to learn about a wide range of wines or those seeking to build on the introductory knowledge gained with the WSET Level 1 Award in Wines.

The classes are led by Johnnie Parkhurst, who enjoys imparting his experience by teaching WSET & bespoke courses to restaurant staff and discerning individuals all over London. His passion for wine and food started growing up in Paris and grew after spending nearly two decades in the restaurant trade and four years as a wine merchant.
