WSET Level 3 Award in Sake - short course

by Caroline Carey | Feb 24, 2017

1-4 August 2016

The world of Sake and Sake-making fascinates those who love wine including sommeliers, wine media, premium wine retailers and consumers.

Since 2007 the International Wine Challenge has included a Japanese Sake category and each year they select a champion/trophy Sake just as they do for wine. The Court of Master Sommeliers periodically include Sake as a part of their education program. So it not surprising that Sake is fast becoming a must-know topic for all beverage professionals.

In response to the global demand for knowledge the Wine and Spirit Education Trust (WSET) developed the Level 3 Sake course in 2014. Now with Yukino Ochiai as the educator, the Sydney Wine Academy can offer the WSET Level 3 Award in Sake course in Australia to educate both the wine trade and consumers about Japanese Sake. 

Yukino Ochiai, Director of Déjà vu Sake Company is the first and only certified Level 3 Sake educator in Australia, and she is very focused on sake education and training.

Since its establishment in April 2012, Deja vu Sake Company, have been actively involved in Sake education and professional training, and were a gold sponsor at the last Court of Master Sommeliers to support sommelier education in Australia.
