Media Release: WSET courses for the North of Scotland


DIANA Thompson of Thompson PR has just become accredited to offer the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 1 in Wines course.

The North-west Highlands-based PR and marketing consultant is now offering this sought-after course direct to hotels and restaurants throughout Scotland. Diana is also working with a number of wine companies in Scotland in order to tutor the course on their behalf.

With over 20 years’ experience in the wine and catering industry Diana set up Thompson PR in 2004. Initially based in Edinburgh, the company offers bespoke PR and marketing to hotels and restaurants throughout Scotland.

Having relocated to the North West Highlands Diana is well situated to assist with WSET tutoring to many hotels and restaurants in remote areas. Diana is currently the only tutor based in the North of Scotland.

“I’m delighted to be able to offer this invaluable course,” says Diana. “And I’m looking forward to being able to offer the Level 2 in Wines and Spirits course from September 2013.”

WSET Level 1 in Wines is traditionally a six hour-long course and can be carried out in one day or split into two sessions. This includes a 45-minute multiple choice exam.

The course gives candidates an introduction to wine and most importantly, good practical tasting experience together with an understanding of food and wine matching.

It is an ideal course for anyone working within the industry; bar staff, waiting staff and managers alike.

Whilst Level 1 is the entry level course, candidates come away with a considerable amount of knowledge, invaluable tutored practical experience and the best possible platform for their professional development.
