As part of the Academic program, we have taken our Diploma students to visit a typical Swiss Vineyard and learn about viticulture and vinification practices.

This was an excellent occasion for the students to learn about the opportunities and challenges winemakers are dealing with every year. In particular, this year`s winterkill which has caused an enormous damage throughout Swiss and European vineyards.

After finishing with the academic program, the students had the chance to try some of the finest wines as the courtesy of the Glesti winery, followed by a barbecue and a visit to the beautiful small Swiss town Stein am Rhein.

We would like to sincerely thank the Glesti family for welcoming us to their vineyard and for the great hospitality.
