Nyetimber has announced it is providing work experience for three students from Plumpton College Wine Centre.

Throughout March, April and May, three students will spend ten days immersed in the English sparkling wine producer’s business. The students are studying wine production and wine business courses at Plumpton, the Sussex-based college which specialises in viticulture, oenology and commercial industry learning and research.

This exposure is aimed at enabling 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 global reputation.

Nyetimber’s owner and chief executive, 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 important 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.”
