WSET is globally recognized as the international standard in wine and spirit knowledge. We are also providers of consulting and on-site training services for restaurants, bar and wine retailers. Our training includes wine list design and staff training on wine pairing, handling and service. Trainees come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the products they sell, which results in better guest satisfaction and sales growth. Our educators are extremely knowledgeable, having years of experience in the wine and hospitality industry and having been lucky enough to travel to some of the very best wine regions in the world.

We are the first school in Guyana to offer a specialized program called Responsible Service of Alcohol (RSA) to aid the industry staff with the skills and knowledge necessary to contribute to a safe, enjoyable environment in licensed premises.
Our RSA training is one of its kind specially designed to aid with the prevention of alcohol abuse locally. It covers alcohol-related topics, such as facts about liquor industry and alcohol, intoxication, benefits of responsible service of alcohol, strategies for responsible service of alcohol, refusal of service and underage drinking.

We offer special seminars , educational tastings and corporate events. The team at Wine World GY are always exploring new ways to grow our curriculum.
