Singapore Polytechnic is once again conducting its local wine course called Certificate of Performance in Wine (The Science and Business of Wine). This will be its 22nd intake and this course commences on 4 april 2011. Costing around $700, it includes 3 modules. They are:
a. the wine knowledge and service module
b. the business module, and
c. the sommelier module.
Apart from theory, this course includes tastings exercises, food and wine pairings sessions and a lab-based practical session.
If memory serves right, the first intake of this wine course was held in april 2006. Its good to see the demand for this program being strong enough to see 21 intakes through. This course may interest those seeking employment within the local wine industry and also wine enthusiasts who wish to widen their knowledge on wine and wine appreciation.
Its also a good way to meet wine lovers!
