Each module is composed of seven tastings in consecutive weeks. Wines are chosen with care to illustrate each theme. The ambience at wine-tastings is studious and animated. Each student is encouraged to engage actively in the discussion. You will quickly develop your palate, for professional success and personal satisfaction. You will be amazed how much you learn.
Tastings are held on weekday evenings, 7:00-9:00 pm. In the tradition of training at Le Cordon Bleu, each module is translated into English.
All modules are proposed every trimester: January, March, June, and September - for starting dates please go to programs and apply (Wine and Management Diploma/Wine & Spirits Initiation).
