Notes on the WSET Diploma, Week 2.

Posted By Chris Kaplonski on Oct 19, 2015

That was tough. Cruel even. Not the theory, or even the blind tasting. Those were fine. Interesting. No, I mean, being expected to taste and spit eight sweet wines, ranging from ‘very good’ to ‘outstanding’. There was a Recioto della Valpolicella Classico. A Canadian ice wine. A Tokaji. A 1992 German Beerenauslese. You get the idea, but the list goes on.

I just wish I had thought through the cultural vandalism that was to be an essential part of this course. I would have reconsidered. Or at least steeled myself against the horror.

I may write more later, but for now, I must quietly contemplate the sacrifices those wines made for my education…
