    NZ2722 - New Zealand Certificate in Cellar Operations (Level 3)

This programme is an intensive programme on the basics of winemaking and finishing, procedures during a winery harvest, and working in a cellar team.

The first six weeks you will have an introduction into the wine industry, basics of winemaking and also practice the tasks required to work successfully in a cellar vintage crew.

The practical days out in wineries increase through the programme.

This leads to the opportunity of a practical vintage placement for 7-8 weeks.

After vintage you will learn wine finishing.

If you are keen to see if you want to have a career in the wine industry, this is the perfect programme for you. It gives you a pathway into winery work, if you have no current experience.

This programme can also lead onto further study on the Bachelor of Viticulture and Winemaking.
