Wine Business & Culture

At one time or another, almost every wine lover has fantasized about buying a small vineyard and making their own wine. LdM welcomes the aspiring sommelier, the future wine buyer, the vintner-to-be, and anyone else who is in serious pursuit of a career in the wine industry. By combining the practical knowledge of wine traditions and flavors with a strong, theoretical foundation in marketing, students establish a rocksteady link between their Italian study abroad experience and their next step to becoming a wine professional, whether that next step is a summer internship back home or that first job inside the global wine market.
