Wine Business FdA




What will I learn?

If you’re looking to work in the wine trade or start your own wine-related business, this programme is ideal for you. Covering a practical and theoretical understanding of wine and the wine industry, it’s an excellent combination of lectures, practical wine tasting, work experience, an independent project and the opportunity to visit European vineyards.


You will gain a strong vocational understanding of the UK wine industry. In your first year, you’ll cover the grape-growing and winemaking, business modules including data management, finance, marketing, plus an overview of the UK wine trade. In your second year you’ll get to study the world’s key still, sparkling and fortified wine-producing regions in greater depth. This will be backed up with business-related modules including wine marketing and strategy, and wine sales and corporate social responsibilty.


With the UK being seen as the most dynamic of world wine markets, UK wine qualifications are certainly held in high regard. You’ll have many opportunities to network directly in the wine industry throughout your course – opening up job opportunities for you after graduation. Many of our successful graduates have gone on to very rewarding careers: business development manager, global wine buyer, independent retailer or sommelier. You can also choose to continue your studies and top up to your BA (Hons) International Wine Business qualification
