Learn how to make wine in English

British wine is nothing much to write home about – or think again. Plumpton College on England’s south coast near Lewes is the UK’s specialist centre for wine research and training, with an impressive alumni network. And champagne made by its students has won international awards.

The college offers a master’s degree (full-time: 15 months, part-time: 27 months, validated by University of Brighton), teaching everything from soil to sales.

Plumpton College is Britain’s centre of excellence in wine education, training and research, and it is the only European higher education institution to offer undergraduate degrees in wine business and production in English. The courses include the best practice from both the ‘Old’ and the ‘New’ World – meaning from France and Italy to Australia and New Zealand, claims the college.

First offered in 1996, around 150 students attend courses each year, and graduates from the Wine courses at Plumpton College have become:

·      Vineyard managers and winemakers, both in the UK and abroad (including Australia, Canada, France and New Zealand)

·      Wine buyers, importers, brand managers and sales accounts managers

·      Wine tourism operators, wine journalists and wine educators

·      Winemaking consultants and research scientists.
