“The Impact in Wine course provided a fascinating insight into every aspect of the UK wine industry. The range and breadth of topics covered was truly staggering, whilst the speakers who presented during the week demonstrated real knowledge and expertise. Most importantly, the course gave me the chance to network with attendees from every imaginable sub-section of the wine industry - which really made this a unique opportunity, and something I'd wholeheartedly recommend to anyone who works within wine.”
