In 2011, the identity ‘Ecole du Vin de Bordeaux - The Campus’, was created for students based in the Bordeaux region.
What is its role? To train students in the Bordeaux region, provide them with knowledge about culture and society, explain the economic aspect of the Bordeaux wine industry, enable them to discover the Bordeaux winegrowing area and facilitate their access to it, as well as increase their awareness of the art of tasting wine in a context of moderation.
To achieve these goals, a range of training courses has been put together especially for students:
- An introductory training course aimed for students via higher education schools
or universities.
- 3 training courses offering gradual development for students directly, to give them an introduction to and improve their knowledge of Bordeaux wines, as well as practise their tasting skills.
- A graduation system to make each training course appealing and show the level of knowledge achieved.
- The possibility of becoming an Ambassador for the Bordeaux Wine School – The Campus.
