Our friends and near neighbours at Crestet “La Verriere” open their doors next month (the 5th-9th September) once again to wine students fot their Extreme Wine Experience - if the quality of the speakers and the organisation is even half as good as their recent hosting of the Grenache Symposium this will be well worth signing up for. Here’s a bit about it from the La Verriere web site:
”Based at the beautiful wine estate of La Verrière, in Provence, Extreme Wine is an intimate and intensive wine course creatively designed for wine enthusiasts of all levels.
Join a small and exclusive group of international wine lovers for five days of total immersion: lectures and workshops, tastings of exceptional wines, hands-on activities in the winery and vineyard, and wonderful wine games.
Stay in La Verrière’s magnificent medieval priory, which has been recently restored to the highest standards of rustic luxury, and enjoy superb cooking by a renowned Provençal chef.
Be tutored in English by top Masters of Wine and celebrated winemakers, make your own assemblage, and get answers to all those wine questions you never dared to ask.
Complete the course with globally recognised Intermediate Certification by the prestigious WSET, as well as our proprietary Chêne Bleu Extreme Wine Certification.
The course is offered in conjunction with the esteemed London Wine Academy (www.londonwineacademy.com“
