This year there are 3 additional places available on the programme for COWA members or those in the Wine Tourism industry.

The programme includes the history of winemaking in the region, marketing, climate and geography and their impact, irrigation and frost fighting, biodynamics, and visits to vineyards and wineries to learn from them about their philosophy and their wines. The course would ideally be suited to Cellar Door staff or those new to the region.
