These students, a total of nine, are currently doing there internship at the Santa María de Alarcos Hospitality and Restaurant Institute and at the Bolaños Family Farm School
For the first time ever the National Trade Fair on Wine, which will be opening its doors on Tuesday, May 10th in the Ciudad Real trade fair grounds, has organized a training program in the shape of an internship in the Wine Gallery for some of the province's students.
It is thanks to the agreement reached between the Social Economics Corporate Federation of Castilla-La Mancha (FECMES) and the trade fair's organization that nine students from the Santa María de Alarcos Hospitality and Restaurant Institute and from the Family Farm School (EFA) in Bolaños de Calatrava will have the opportunity to further their training even more and add dimension to their academic curriculum with a pioneer initiative.
According to David Moyano, Representative of the FECMES, nine students, three young men and three young women, will have the opportunity to do an internship at the Wine Gallery, the same during the trade fair, from Tuesday to Thursday, 8.30 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. This is really a wonderful way for FENAVIN to have an impact on the province's vocational training scope, Moyano added.
This program, which is voluntary, will allow the students to participate in a blind tasting session, which will be taking place on Tuesday, the same directed by the President of the Madrid Association of Sommeliers, Luis García de la Navarra. The students will also participate in chats on designations of origin, commented tasting sessions, apart from other more technical events in which they will learn the art of uncorking a bottle of wine, bottle placement at the table, etc.
These young students will be evaluated by the FECMES Head of Personnel, who will send a report to the students' tutors at each school. The future goal is to continue with this initiative, for which about 10 to 15 posts will be reserved in the upcoming editions.
