This is an international reference certification in the field of wine and spirits that students of the MS Food & Wine of the Collège de Paris are about to obtain from next February: the Wine & Spirit Education Trust, commonly called the WSET.

The WSET, an international referent organization

Initially designed to train and evaluate professionals of hospitality and catering, the WSET is now opened to wine lovers who wish to refine their knowledge.
