VICTORIA Wines will be supporting the Wines and Spirits Education Trust wine courses in Fiji for the fifth consecutive year.

In a statement, the company said this was in line with a commitment to develop wine appreciation and knowledge among its 900-member wine club.

The provision of internationally recognised accreditation will be delivered by Master of Wine, Jane Skilton, the director of the New Zealand School of Wines and Spirits.

Victoria Wines will host the wine courses with the support of partners Villa Maria Wines and Staging Connections Fiji and event host Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa.

Company director Kate Vusoniwailala said bringing the training to Fiji was a major commitment of the company over the past five years.

"It illustrates our commitment to supporting the tourism and hospitality industry in the development and delivery of confident and competent wine skills by industry professionals," she said.

The 2018 Wines and Spirits Educational Trust Level One and Two training will be held from the February 5 to 8 at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa.
