BIS #2305 JOURNEY INTO THE WORLD OF WINES

Patrick Corda
BORIVLI, FEBRUARY 26, 2011: A very popular saying found in most of the wine shops “God made wine and Man named it”. On February 25, 2011 Don Bosco Technical Training Institute arranged a two hours session in Wine Training, a programme conducted by UB Groups & Tulleho Beverage Innovations supported by Four Seasons Hotel Pvt Ltd. which was out of generosity.

The session began at 11.00 am. Sixty five students of Sankalp Batch-4 attended the session; it was for the first time that an external training that too, in wines was conducted in the institute. Mr. Clive Castelino, Training Manager- Wines of UB Group United Spirits Limited started the session with a power point presentation on wines, he explained what is wine, types of wine, viniculture, soil, how to taste wine, etc. after the presentation it was time for the wine bottles to be opened. Sixty glasses of white wine and red wine were ready and the students were just waiting to sip the wine. When all the students had a glass in their hands Mr. Clive informed them to take it easy and relish every drop of the wine, he showed them the following steps the three-S’s which is See, Swirl, and Sip. The moment they finished swirling they just sipped it. The expression on their faces was worth seeing. Every one enjoyed the training, more than that they enjoyed drinking it. A vote of thanks was given to the trainers on behalf of Fr. Anthony Santarita Director of the institute.

“Come to me all those who are thirsty” and I will give you Wine was the words of Fr. Anthony Santarita.
