Wine program

The culture of dining, the modern restaurant scene, and the food industry are inconceivable without wine and other alcoholic beverages that have become an indispensable part of gastronomy and everyday life.

Knowledge of wine culture and its history, proper handling, and quality presentation and communication skills are all required for professional work with wine. Besides learning the general rules of wine bon ton, it is important to stay educated and follow new trends because wine is a live product and demands continuous tasting, consideration, and research.

Kul IN's wine program uses a theoretical and hands-on training so that students can get a complete insight into the world of wine. The program is intended for those who are employed in tourism, the catering industry, restaurants and hotels, winemakers, sales representatives, wine critics and wine lovers. For enrolment in the program, no previous knowledge in enology or winemaking is necessary.

Upon completion, the student is going to have knowledge to independently determine wine quality, select wines, pair wine with food and compose the wine chart.

FIELD TRIPS TO WINERIES

As part of the wine program, students will also have field trips organized by lecturers to visit famous wineries, wine shops, and restaurants with outstanding wine archives or wine charts. During these visits, students get acquainted with wine cellars, wine storage, and vinification while having the opportunity to begin networking with wineries, enologists, and sommeliers. These experiences help students get to know the wine industry and market.
