“IWEG’s signature series offers a superb opportunity to dive deeply into specific areas, illustrated by top quality wines. They should be part of everyone’s ongoing education." - John Szabo Dip WSET, MS @johnszabo
 
The Signature Series brings you innovative seminars throughout the academic year that highlight current and relevant subject matter with a unique educational edge. Designed to engage our alumni, students and consumers these seminars are an excellent platform to continue learning, develop tasting skills and to network with fellow industry.

Rosé Made Me Do It on Tuesday, June 18th @ 6:30PM - 8:30PM: Rosé All Day didn’t happen overnight. Pink wine sales have exploded in recent years in North America. In France, rosé now outsells white wines. But that wasn’t always the case. Dedicated producers once struggled to make the case that the refreshing and refined character of dry rosé was a serious wine style. Join IWEG’s Director of Education Christopher Waters, DipWSET, with special guests such as Shiraz Mottiar, Winemaker at Malivoire for a comparative tasting of local and international styles and a look at how winemaking and marketing styles have evolved to make rosé one of the hottest trends in wine.
