LVL 1 Wine Sample Questions & Tips

The first thing to know is that our pass rates for LVL1 classes are 99%. If you pay attention, you will most likely pass. Online classes can be a bit more difficult as you don't have the comradierie of a class nor are you guided through the topics and pairing exercises in a face to face with one of our instructors. If you are a student with WEI you can find timed practice exams with scoring in your student portal

You will have 45 minutes to answer 30 multiple choice questions, this is plenty of time so take time to ensure you read questions completely.

Again, the Level 1 is an introductory class and is not a prerequisite for taking Level 2.
