So you are convinced beverage is your calling, your chosen poison for life. Well, that’s half the job done. All that is left for you now is to download the application form from our site, fill it in, attach your photograph and essays, references if any, and send it all in with the application fee. Our address is:
Institute of Wine + Beverage Studies
A-79 Ashok Vihar
Phase - 2
New Delhi – 110052
The eligibility criteria for applying for Level 1 studies at IWBS is pretty simple – you must successfully convince us of your infectious passion for the product. Formative studies in hospitality are definitely a plus but not indispensable. That aside, proficiency in the English language is a must: wine is art first and science later. We prefer you a poet than someone in a white lab coat.
For Level 2 and 3, successful completion of the previous lower level is required. External candidates who wish to jump a level would be required to sit the relevant exam level before they are accepted to the desired level.
For the period of October-December 2009, the suggested essay topics are as follows:
God made water but man made wine: elucidate
Cork or Screw Cap: The closing statement
Cocktails: What Next
Whisky or Vodka: Choice of the times
Growing vine or making wine: the greater genius
Beverage selling strategies for the New Age
All applications for Level 1 course must be accompanied by a non-refundable processing fee of INR1000 (Rupees One Thousand only) paid either in Cash or Demand Draft payable at par in New Delhi made out to ‘Wi-Not Beverage Solutions Private Limited’.
Upon confirmation of a place in the batch, the fee will have to be cleared in total no later than the first day of the course. For the day-course, the fee must preferably be cleared no later than the day of the course, before commencement.
