Wine Minds Apprenticeship

Earlier this year we started the Wine Minds Programme, and in addition to this we’ve now launched the Wine Minds Apprenticeship to further support hospitality and drinks industry stars of the future with essential knowledge and industry experience.

This new six-month, part-time apprenticeship will give two successful applicants the chance to further advance their careers in the hospitality and drinks industries. It will provide individuals the chance to undergo either WSET L2 or L3 training, a bespoke internship with a leading producer, as well as a full calendar of masterclasses and visits to a host of wineries throughout the winemaking world.

This apprenticeship is open for applications from all Wine Minds Programme members based in the UK. The two successful candidates will be selected and announced towards the end of 2018, with the programme kicking off early 2019.
