SkillsFirst "Principles of Wine Service" (Online Course)

Principles of Wine Service (6 credits; RQF Ref.: F/508/1049) - This online course will introduce you to the principles of correct wine service, helping you identify the care of wine, glassware, different types of wine service and the matching of wine to food.


This course is designed for learners employed or wishing to work in hospitality roles such as bar staff/managers, conference and banqueting assistants/managers or waiters/waitresses looking for a formal qualification to help them in their hospitality career.


If you have successfully completed this online course as well as the courses "Principles of Wine Sources and Production" and "Principles of Providing Service to Customers in the Wine Industry", then you will be eligible to sit the exams for the SkillsFirst Level 2 Certificate in Wine Service (RQF).
