Vatel Bordeaux: Spotlight on Wine Management
Vatel Bordeaux offers a specialization in the 2nd year of its MBA program, called International Wines & Spirits Management Not wanting to let our Bavarian guests leave the 'Sleeping Beauty'city without having sampled its fine nectars, Vatel Bordeaux asked one of its professional instructors, Ms Mispelblom, to organize a two-hour Bordeaux wine-tasting workshop. With a degree in Oenology from the University of Bordeaux and a WSET Level 4 Diploma, Ms Mispelblom took advantage of the introductory session, held in a professional tasting room, to teach the basics of wine-making and about the unique features of Bordeaux wines to the rapt German students. Over and above the quality of her presentation, Natalie and Andreas stress that 'excellent teaching depends on the instructor, but also on the teaching materials... and here, we had all of that combined':
* A countertop with a sink/spittoon for each student;
* LED lights to help observe the color of the wines;
* Tasting accessories: glasses, waiter’s corkscrews, a glassware washer, and more.
