February saw a slew of top releases from Krug, Charles Heidsieck and Sassicaia, alongside fresh innovations that included an alcohol-free 'spirit', Coravin's new digitally-connected Model Eleven, and a range of colour-changing gins.
winejobsonline has made a big difference to accessing vacancies in the wine industry. I put up the position vacancies on our student winery noticeboard and the students can look at just one source to find a job, rather than trawling through the newspaper or the internet. On our trip north, we finished up a long day of concentrating on wines and vineyards with a beer tasting at Hallertau, sponsored by winejobsonline. The staff and students really appreciated it!
