Over the last 20+ years, the Glengarry Wine Academy has established itself as one of the leading wine educators in New Zealand.

Initially created to train Glengarry staff, it is also widely used by the hospitality industry and wine enthusiasts. Informative, but never intimidating, the Glengarry Wine Academy courses are an opportunity for beginners as well as experienced aficionados to expand their knowledge and develop their interest. The only prerequisite is a passion for wine!

Staged over four weeks this is a very much hands-on course that encourages participants to gain 'wine confidence' by breaking down the intimidation factor and providing a good grounding in the sensory evaluation and perception of wine. The main grape varieties are discussed in detail with wines from around New Zealand and across the globe tasted to highlight the various characteristics of each variety.

Key topics covered:
- How to taste and evaluate wine
- Distinguishing the characteristics of different grape varietals and wine styles
- The 6 main factors affecting the taste of wine
- The language of wine
- Wine and food matching
- Purchasing and cellaring wines

The course fee and content covers all four weeks.
