Wine & Spirit Education Trust
Wine and Spirits Education Series
May 2018 in St. John, U.S. Virgin Islands
We are proud to be able to co-host three fun and educational training courses on St. John in May 2018. This is a great opportunity to receive world class training and an internationally recognized certification right here in the US Virgin Islands.
All classes will be held at The Terrace Restaurant on St. John.
The Level 1 courses are great introductory courses that even a novice can enjoy while the Level 2 Wine Certification is recommended for industry professionals or true wine aficionados that want to increase their knowledge of wine.
The tourism industry in the USVI is recovering and we want to be a be a positive force in keeping that moving forward. That is why we are going to be offering a full scholarship to a service industry professional in an effort to help someone in our most vital industry continue to improve their skills and hopefully advance their career in food and wine. Details will be posted on our Facebook page including how you can nominate a candidate.
Information on the three courses offered can be found by following these links to the Wine and Spirits Education Trust (WSET) website.
