You can buy the wines you will need for the tastings during your online course in ready-to-ship packs from Blind Bishop, a sister organization to Dallas Wine Education Center. The wines in the bundles are selected by Dilek Caner MW to express the typical characteristics of the varieties and the regions to be covered in the curriculum.
The bundles contain the wines in the WSET sample list for each course.
For WSET Level 1, we have replaced the Chilean Chardonnay and Chilean Pinot Noir options with USA versions for two reasons:
- The US versions of these varieties are much more relevant for the US market.
- The US versions we chose represent a better quality/price ratio.
- The styles to be covered are typical examples for an oaked Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir from a similar climate, and are perfect substitutes for the learning points.
We understand that buying full bottles of each wine is rather cost-prohibitive and we we try to select half bottles whenever possible. The list below contains several 375ml. items, as well as a few 750ml. ones.
Currently we are shipping the following bundle:
