- The style and quality of wines from 22 regionally important grape varieties produced in over 70 geographical indications (GIs) around the world;
- How grape varieties and winemaking processes influence key styles of sparkling wines & fortified wines;
- Key labelling terms used to indicate origin, style and quality;
- Principles and processes involved in the storage and service of wine;
- Principles of food and wine pairing.
