Wine study courses?

Hi all,
Can anyone point me in the direction of any courses aimed at those wishing to study more about wine with a view to working in the industry?
They can be part or full-time, home study, distance learning.
Preferably UK based but others considered.
Any advice or assistance gratefully received.
Nick

If you are UK-based, a WSET qualification is what you shoul dbe aiming for:

/. Courses are run all over the country. The lower-level qualifications are usually run as evening classes but there are 1 or 2 places in London that do intensive courses of about one week.

I've been away from the computer but am still in time, at least for BC. (Same time zone as I'm in, further south). With its unusually productive 5000 ha. of vines.

Thanks to all.
I must be getting old - calling it 'Canada Day' just doesn't seem right when as a kid it was always called Dominion Day.
I seem to recall a spate of political correctness in the 80s changed all that!

If you really want to go for it try the Bordeaux Business School. They run a wine MBA taught in English - a full time one year course. Surprisingly, very few French join this course.

The MIB in Trieste offers a Masters degree in Wine Business. The only one in Europe other than Bordeaux, already cited.

The Wine and Spirit Education Trust run very good courses, from basic to Master of Wine. If you are serious then the higher certificate (1 week) is a good starter, and then go for the diploma (1 to 2 years depending on how hard you work). They can be found on the internet under, I think, www.WSET.co.uk well worth doing! Hope it helps.
