Would you like to learn more about how wine is made?

The aims of this one-week intensive course are to provide a good level of knowledge and understanding of winemaking (oenology) to those who wish to start making wine, work in a winery, enter the wine trade, or have a strong interest in the world of wine.

During the course, winemaking theory is introduced in the morning classroom session, then put into practice during the afternoon session in the winery. It is based on the seven-day Extensive Principles of Winemaking course, and allows a good understanding of winery activities over a short, intense, period of time.
Topics include:
Harvest preparation
Grape processing
Must amelioration
Alcoholic fermentation
Red wine production
Wine clarification
Wine stability and packaging
Sparkling wine production

The course ends with a 30-minute multiple-choice test. The theory sessions for this course will delivered in the mornings at Plumpton College Wine Centre classrooms, and the practical session in the afternoons at Plumpton College winery.
