Nyetimber is for the first time providing work experience for three students from Plumpton College Wine Centre, one of the foremost academic centres of excellence for viticulture, oenology and commercial industry learning and research.
Over March, April and May, three students will spend ten days immersed in the Nyetimber business, learning all about its renowned pioneering approach developed over the last thirty years. The students are studying wine production and wine business courses at Plumpton and will spend time with Nyetimber’s Vineyard, Winery, Sales and Marketing teams. This exposure will enable the students to gain a good understanding of the various aspects of how Nyetimber operates and the lengths it must go to to maintain its reputation as one of the world’s finest sparkling wine producers.
Nyetimber owner and CEO, Eric Heerema said: “With the increasing demand for quality English Sparkling Wine there is a commensurate need for the industry to recruit more talent from the growing number of students learning about wine. We at Nyetimber are delighted to offer work experience to students from Plumpton as we appreciate the importance of discovering young professionals with an aptitude for wine, offering mentoring, training and hands-on experience to develop those who want to pursue a career in what is a fascinating, exciting and rewarding industry.”
