From enthusiast to connoisseur

Hone your senses, train your palate: learn about wine from the experts

How do you swirl a wine glass properly, detect the finest scent notes or recognise varieties and identify vintages on the palate? How does wine get from the vine to the glass and from Alto Adige to the whole world? 

Wine lovers will find the answer to these and many other questions on various courses and seminars, where experienced professionals turn enthusiasts into connoisseurs. Wine experts too can expand their knowledge, gain new insights and make new contacts.
