WineWise opens new wine education centre in Brussels
WineWise, the Belgian reference for wine education, is set to open a new location in the Excellis centre in Evere in October 2019. Since 2001, WineWise has been offering professional and certified wine courses in Antwerp and Ghent and with this new location it targets the hospitality business, wine trade and wine lovers in the Brussels area.
WineWise is the recognized provider in Belgium and the Netherlands for all courses of the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET), the international world leader for wine education. “Wine education is globally on the rise,” says Sybille Troubleyn, founder of WineWise, “Last year, more than 100,000 people took a WSET qualification, a growth of 15%. With our new location, we are responding to the increasing demand on the Belgian market.”.
By attending a professional wine course, wine merchants and (future) wine professionals can select and advise wine with more knowledge. In addition, WineWise also focuses on the Brussels hospitality industry. “Composing an attractive wine list and giving suitable wine advice is a pain point in many restaurants,” says Sybille Troubleyn. “We want to enable them to provide better customer service by giving their staff more professional wine knowledge”.
Given the multilingual and international target audience, the courses will initially be offered in English by a professional team of wine educators. Antoine Lehebel, sommelier at the Brussels 2-star restaurant Bon Bon and recently awarded 10th best sommelier in the world is one of the teachers. Lessons will be given both during the day and in the evening, and after passing the exam, each participant will receive an international WSET certificate.
