Grapes Beyond Borders

The scope of „Grapes Beyond Borders” project was to give the possibility to young Hungarian winemakers to get familiar with the French wine culture and the methods, special procedures used by French wineries. The scene of the project was the Region of Burgundy, a historic wine region in France. The combination of the special soil and the microclimate ensures the perfect conditions for the growing of the most famous grapes of this land: these are the noble white grapes: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

10 wineries have been appointed to participate in the project as host partners. The wineries suggested to make the project 16 weeks long, because this is the period when the participants may develop the most. The wineries hosted 10 Hungarian youth and give the chance to the participants to look into the daily routine of the work processes. A detailed work schedule has been prepared for the trainees and personal tutors were responsible for professional development of participants.

The project has been implemented from 30th of August till 20th of December, 2013. The participants had the opportunity to participate in the harvest, contribute to the wine making process and have an overview on local management, marketing and merchandising techniques. The experience and knowledge gained could contribute to the professionalism of Hungarian wine making methods, participants have great chance to get employed or start their own businesses.
