Join us for an introduction to the main wine producing regions of New Zealand.
New Zealand produces 1% of the world’s wine yet punches above its weight in key export markets. Join us as we celebrate New Zealand Wine Week 2023 and help you learn about New Zealand's main wine regions. Ed Wicks DipWSET will explore the geography of these regions, the key grape varieties grown, and the wide range of wine styles produced.
The new series of free bitesize 30-minute webinars are open to anyone and are ideal for beginners looking to learn more about wine.
Edward Wicks DipWSET, Wine Educator, WSET School London
Ed has been working in the drinks business in some form since he turned 18 years old. A long stint as a cocktail bartender laid the foundation for his love of spirits. It was during this time he decided to study the WSET Level 2 Award in Wines and Spirits qualification, which also ignited his passion for wine. Within a few busy years, he had completed both the Level 3 and Diploma. He was awarded the Porter & Laker Scholarship prize at Level 3 and both the Louis Jadot and Yvonne May Wine Australia Scholarship prizes at Diploma. He is an enthusiastic champion of sweet wines and is always trying to make new converts to the style.
