The whole point of our immersion study trips is to allow participants to learn as much as possible about the visited region and its wines.

It is mandatory to take the WSG Master Level course for the region you have chosen to visit. The price of the course is included in the price of the Trip. And It is important to take the course before the trip to be able to keep up with the instruction, which will be delivered assuming that everyone has already taken the course and has all the basic information already.

An Enrolled Study Price applies to those currently studying the regions' Master-Level program or who have completed it.

Full registration in the region’s Master-Level program means students who have previously ordered the region's Master-Level study manual, exam registration and online study program. Registrants only partially enrolled in the region's Master-Level program (eg.: Only have manual and exam, or only online study program…) will get the Enrolled Trip Price and will be invoiced directly by WSG for the portion of the Master-Level they are missing at a 50% discount on prices listed on the WSG website.

If an updated manual is needed, it can be purchased at a 50% discount.
