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.

The students had the opportunity to learn about the opportunities and challenges wine makers are dealing with every year. In particular the winterkill which has caused this year an enormous damage with an estimated loss of 80% of the yield through out Swiss and European wine yards.

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 barbeque 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.
