HAVE you ever wondered about the
journey your wine has taken to get
from a grape vine to the glass in your
You need wonder no more -- CIT
Solutions is offering an exclusive,
behind-the-scenes course that explores
the wine industry.
The new course takes a hands-on
approach in the vineyard, at the winery
and lab, and encourages students to
taste a great range of local products.
Jeir Creek Winery owner Rob
Howell designed the course and will
work alongside vineyard owner and
viticulturist Richard Cottam over the
coming months. The pair will pass on
their extensive knowledge of the

running the course after years of
teaching mapping sciences and viticul-
ture and wine making courses at CIT.

"I like to keep it fairly small because
there's nothing I enjoy more than
seeing the dawning light of under-
standing," Mr Howell said. "Each of
those 15 people can come in and do the
hands-on bit rather than just stand in
As part of the course, students will
take part in assessing the fruit ready for
harvest, the processing of the grapes,
all the fermentations and the final
filtrations, modifying of the wine to
make it suitable for bottling and finally
"So they get to see from grape to
final bottle -- It's a magic experience,"
Mr Howell said.
