About us

The Certified Dipsos is a wine club set up by WSET Diploma students for students and graduates. The club is run by former students and graduates.

So why should you join?

Because we’re serious about wine! and It’s excellent value for money!

Membership costs only €25 per year. The monthly tastings cost an average of €40 per session.

You also have the opportunity to meet past and present students in an informal and relaxed atmosphere and the chance to taste some top-quality wines that you may not normally get a chance to taste.

We have blind tastings, vertical and horizontal tastings as well as wines from ‘cult’ producers. Plus, previous speakers have kindly brought unique bottles from their own cellar. Our aim is to continually raise the bar on the quality of our tastings.

Summary of members’ survey 2017
We received a vast amount of interesting and constructive feedback from both current and former members. We have started to action many of the most recurrent suggestions and major trends that emerged from the survey with the aim of ensuring that the club has a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere and that our tastings are relevant and enjoyable for all members.

Below is a brief summary of the main findings:

  • 58 responses received.
  • Majority were happy with day/timing and general location of tastings.
  • Very high level of satisfaction with the quality and value for money of the tastings.
  • A clear demand for more New World tastings and opening the group to guest speakers from the Irish and international wine trade.
  • Low level of interest in special spirits tastings, e.g. gin or whiskey.

Thanks to all the members who responded.
