Through training, students have the opportunity to familiarize themselves with wines and spirits, by combining theory and practice. The topics are related to the basics of wine-making and viticulture, service and wine tasting, wine and food matching, as well as with the characteristics of grape varieties from the most famous wine regions. Each class also includes a practical part – wine tasting and evaluation.
The courses are held in Sremski Karlovci, the city of wine and spirituality, in an ambient surrounded by vineyards. Each participant has the opportunity to see where the wine story begins, how the grape and wine are made, which is a precedent in these type of courses. The importance of such courses is reflected in the creation of an increasing number of wine connoisseurs who will be able to use their knowledge in the hospitality and tourism business, wine production, wine business and as well for students studying related sciences.
