Ever since the world was pinned down by the effects of Covid-19 there’s been a surge in online tutorials from both brands and bartenders demonstrating basic shaking techniques and the ‘perfect Mojito’. However, at the industry’s top level there’s been a drought in innovative education, until now.

Wine research and content company Liquid Icons has launched The Golden Vines Awards and fundraising event that will support diversity and inclusion-related wine education funding globally.

The Wine & Spirits Education Trust (WSET) has announced that the first half of 2014 saw the WSET Level 3 award in wines and spirits being run for the first time in Chinese.

Lanson International has launched a website to educate trade and consumers about champagne, called L‟Académie de Lanson.

Two Asian wine experts are to host an introduction to the Institute of Masters of Wine education programme at the Hong Kong International Wine & Spirits Fair in early November.
