This course follows on from the Foundation NZ Wine Micro-Credential and explores in greater detail, through a series of comparative tastings, the depth and diversity of New Zealand’s artisan, organic red and white wines along with sweet and sparkling styles of wine.
The development of sound tasting skills and an understanding of wine and food pairing is the goal of this programme.
With this new knowledge, candidates will improve and enhance the customer experience in their workplace and build a better understanding of this dynamic and growing sector of the New Zealand economy.
The New Zealand Wine Guide 2nd edition is the Winner of the Gourmand Awards national competition for New Zealand, in category W1-8 Wine Tourism and category W3-3 Wine Photography.
Although a large number of general interest wine enthusiasts join this course it is also ideally suited for those working in or wanting to work in the hospitality, wine or beverage sectors.
