This course is for anyone who would like to learn more about sustainable methods of viticulture. We recommend having a basic level of wine knowledge (WSET Level 1 or equivalent), but it'll be interesting and fun for the seasoned expert too!
This course can be booked as an add on to our WSET Level 1 or 2 courses for a combined price, please drop us an email for details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Where is the course held?
We're lucky enough to call the vineyards and winery of Knightor, near St Austell our classroom. We'll spend time outside exploring the vines when we can, so please bring sensible shoes and come prepared for the unpredictable Cornish weather.
Price includes tea, coffee, tutored tastings of nine wines, and a light lunch.
