Terroirs Divins – wine tasting salon in Rivesaltes
27th March 2021 at 11h00 - 17h00
Terroirs DiVins – Annual Wine Tasting Salon
The Rivesaltes CFPPA (Rivesaltes agricultural college) and its future wine advisors, also known as the “Vins sur Vingt”, invite you to join them for the 14th annual TERROIRS DIVINS wine tasting fair on Saturday 27th March.
The class is sponsored by Fabienne Bonet, chairwoman of the Chamber of Agriculture and their specialist training in Management, Marketing and International Wine Trade is funded by the Regional Council of Occitanie.
Over 7 months, the apprentices aquire the necessary skills and expertise to later occupy positions including sales reps, cellar managers and more… thus becoming Ambassadors for Roussillon wines.
More than 90% of the trainees from the class of 2018 have already found jobs, locally, nationally and internationally.
This year, the health crisis has forced the programme to think outside the box and the hosting of the salon in itself became a learning challenge. Teachers and staff have worked hard to innovate in response to ever-changing rules and regulations and are proud to launch their very first digital wine fair!
In addition to the usual skills of wine tasting, sales techniques and negotiation, the brand new format also allows students to implement their theoretical knowledge of strategic and digital marketing.
