Winewise – Who are we?

People often say: “The wine world is evolving faster than ever”. And it’s true, wine is a lifelong learning process. That is why we at WineWise would like to provide you with the puzzle pieces you need, so you can learn to develop your own insights in the international wine world. Besides learning about wine at WineWise, you can also explore the world of spirits, and recently Sake has been added to our programme. This way we ensure you are up-to-date on the most recent developments in the wine and spirits world.


WSET – Wine and Spirit Education Trust – is world leader for international wine courses. WineWise is the Approved Programme Provider (APP) for all WSET courses in Belgium. We also offer the highest WSET course, level 4 – Diploma in Wines and Spirits, in the Netherlands.

WineWise has a team of specialised teachers and trainers. At the end of the course and after passing the exam, each student receives an International WSET certificate.


Of course, it is essential to have some knowledge of wine. But nowadays, anyone who would like to enter the wine world should have an independent and open view. We are not connected to wine merchants and we mainly believe in the ‘reason’ for things. We want to provide a framework, a common thread within which to situate your knowledge better..


Are you a wine merchant, caviste or restaurateur who would like to acquire or give your employees the self-confidence needed to provide expert wine advice to your customers?

Are you a manager who would like your team to be able to chat about wine during business lunches?

Training in an open group, in-company or individually: it’s up to you. The most important thing is that we offer custom courses for every student. A short, intensive or extensive course, online studying or as a reward in the way of an incentive… Together we map out the path that suits you best.

WineWise Antwerpen

WineWise Antwerp is a modern location where atmosphere and functionality go hand in hand. The house is situated in the green lung of Antwerp, near the Middelheim Park where parking is still free and public transport stops at the door. There is a didactic classroom for up to 18 people on the ground floor and a cosy room we use for incentives or keep-up sessions, which is also big enough for up to 18 people, on the first floor. Food and wine harmony is also possible thanks to the open kitchen. The whole building has wireless internet. Both rooms can be rented for private initiatives.
