In this residency, students will have the opportunity to attend the CIA-Global Wine Summit. Students will experience dynamic guest speakers both at the conference and in special sessions designed for the MPS program. Students will have the opportunity to interact virtually with leaders in the wine industry and begin to consider who they might identify as members of a committee to provide mentorship for Capstone project. Capstone project / playbook introductory information will be communicated to students and students will complete a practice pitch of their initial project idea to a faculty committee that will provide feedback for future project development. Through a series of tutored tastings, students will also develop their professional tasting skills for spirits, fermented and non-alcoholic beverages.
