Destinations include Rioja, Sapin, Burgundy in France, Germany, Italy and Austria along with Chateaux, museums and other villages in the region of Gironde. Internship: Students undertake an internship from 3 weeks up to as many as 10 weeks during their time at Wine Art. They take place in one of our Grand Cru Classé partner chateaux. Examples of previous internships include : Chateau Angelus, Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte. Cultural experience: For one week during each intake students are welcomed into a local family's home. These families maybe located in the centre of Bordeaux or nestled amongst the beautiful vineyards. It allows students to experience the authentic French way of living.
