Anyone interested in Portuguese wine has the chance to learn more at a new academy being set up by Wines of Portugal, in association with Harpers Wine & Spirit.
Wines of Portugal has developed three WSET-style training modules that take members of the trade through introductory, intermediate and advanced learning about Portuguese wines.
The Wines of Portugal Academy promises to give both individuals and companies interested in the country the training and ability to really help drive Portuguese wine sales in their business.
The course will provide insight into Portuguese regions, grape types and wine styles, and all attendees will receive a certificate on completion.
Nuno Vale, marketing director for Wines of Portugal, said: ‘There is a definite buzz around Portuguese wines at the moment, as the value and variety that they offer find increased relevance for buyers and retailers looking to ‘wow' their demanding customers.
"The Wines of Portugal Academy has been created specifically to help educate more fully those responsible for buying and selling our wines," he added.
