The Global Wine Academy brings together some of the UK’s most experienced and effective wine educators for a high quality educational experience that stands out in the sector.  

In partnership with Enjoy Discovering Wine (WSET Diploma APP) and Marsiglio Wine, we deliver Tasting Masterclasses, 'Match Fit' Wine Theory Preparation Courses and Calibration Tastings to ensure that wine students:

  • Develop strong tasting and clear analytical skills to provide effective explanation of wines

  • Build a solid understanding of the theory of wine production and sale

  • Calibrate their palates to ensure alignment with industry standards

Jim Gore DipWSET, former Principal of the WSET School London and founder of the Global Wine Academy, works with Erica Dent DipWSET of Enjoy Discovering Wine and Christine Marsiglio DipWSET, MW. They are all passionate about wine and the wine industry and helping wine students raise their game. 

These highly qualified educators have taken care to develop and test an educational approach that mixes small, online classroom groups with self-study. This is based on current educational theory, their own research and experience and a lot of feedback from students. So there is a laser-sharp focus on what students need to succeed.

Students work together as well as alone to learn from each other as well as the educators. On most of our courses, students receive a lot of individual attention and feedback, with educators always available to provide a high level of support through Whatsapp and shared documents on Google Drive. Taken together, this approach builds confidence in their own abilities as well as a thorough understanding of the subject. 

These sessions are complemented by Online Calibration Tasting sessions to really ensure that you are match fit for studies and exams. 

As a result, our students make the very most of their studies and maximise their marks in the relevant examinations. 

Past Global Wine Academy students have gone on to pass exams they had failed before or achieve much better results than they had expected. Such as Tim Clark, the winner of the 2020 Vintners’ Cup.
