Bob Campbell’s Wine Certificate Course
9.00 am to 5.00 pm, Sunday 4 November 2018
Regional Wines & Spirits, 15 Ellice Street, Wellington
Cost: $249.00 incl. GST per person

For an unprecedented third time in a year, New Zealand’s leading wine educator, Bob Campbell MW will be conducting his Wine Certificate Course in the one day format in Wellington on Sunday 4 November. Bob is only one of just over 300 Masters of Wine in the world, a highly respected wine writer and international wine judge. He has lectured to well over 23,000 people since running his popular wine courses from 1986.

In the Wine Certificate Course, Bob will show you how to taste wine like a professional, explain his technique for fast-tracking your understanding of wine – a process he calls ‘wine profiling’, help you understand the language of wine, teach you how to identify faulty wines and give you guidelines for matching wine and food. He will also provide you with rules for cellaring wines and reveal techniques for making every wine taste better, and much more. Bob will guarantee your enjoyment of wine will be increased after attending the course!

The fee of $249.00 includes all wines, a bound book of notes, morning and afternoon teas. There will be a lunch break for an hour from 12.30 pm. Attendees are welcome to bring a packed lunch or patronise one of the nearby eateries. There is no exam to sit, and all attendees receive the certificate. The course has been endorsed by many people, from those new in wine to wine professionals and winemakers, for its fun, education and inspiration. There is always a strong demand for the places at each course and early bookings are recommended to be able to attend.

Bob regularly conducts the one day format for his Wine Certificate Course in other venues around New Zealand (and overseas). Other upcoming courses can be seen on his website.
