Plumpton College in south east England is offering a course to learn about the UK wine trade. The four month course covers marketing, grapegrowing and winemaking with a UK focus.
It is expected to appeal to people from wine-producing countries outside the UK who want to sell into the highly competitive UK market as well as those looking to enter the UK wine trade.
English-born, lived several years in Wellington, NZ, then in Adelaide, South Australia, and recently moved back to New Zealand. With an economics background, I have worked in researching wine consumption patterns, marketing, economics and social media at the University of Adelaide. I also worked a vintage and in wineries in McLaren Vale so have seen both the research/analytical side of the industry and the practical/hands-on side. I have retail experience and many ongoing industry links all around Australia and overseas. This blog reflects my ongoing passion for everything related to the wine industry.
