The Best App for WSET® Level 2 Prep

Brainscape's insider team of wine professionals has worked tirelessly to create the most comprehensive set of flashcards for WSET® 2 exam-takers and wine enthusiasts. If you’re determined to increase your wine knowledge, this class is the best place to start.

More Dependable than Any Other Resource

Recognizing that there was no proper study tool or any other wine class up to our own standards for the material covered in the WSET™ Level 2 textbook, this course was developed and written by a 25-year industry veteran who has worked in several facets of the wine industry: as a retail wine buyer, sommelier, wine director, harvest intern, wine journalist, and wine educator. This class was written to help those who are sitting for the WSET™ Level 2 exam to pass it; it is also an extensive resource for those not in the industry but who are passionate about wine and want to up their game.

Brainscape’s author spent numerous hours poring over the current Level 2 textbook edition and broke down the content into the most convenient and digestible language possible. We then had a Master of Wine proofread the flashcards to refine the content, and now you can benefit from the most comprehensive, clear study solution for the WSET® Level 2 exam.

About the Content in the WSET® 2 Class

This WSET™ Level 2 course contains nearly 800 flashcards that provide an in-depth review of all major subject areas in the world of wine: viticulture, winemaking, and most important grapes across the globe. We’ve streamlined the information in the textbook so you gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of why wines taste the way they do.

Why Brainscape Works:

Brainscape’s learning scientists from Columbia and Yale spent years developing a complete, scientifically optimized learning platform specifically for the mobile environment.

Brainscape's proprietary learning algorithm, called Confidence-Based Repetition (CBR), spaces the repetition of each bite-sized concept according to the right interval for YOUR brain.
