In midsummer temperatures of August, the Georgian interns met for the first time for the incorporate seasons that a part of the AKI internship programs. The four apprentices and students from the Georgian wine-growing region of Kakheti and the capital Tbilisi got the chance to exchange their newly gained practical experiences on their host farms to learn more about German car engineering (Audi museum in Neckarsulm) as well as fruit growing and wine making in Southern Germany. One of the visited places was the State Education and Research Institute Weinsberg (LVWO) in the region of Wurttemberg. One thing was clear at the wine tasting at the latter: The young winemakers know their craft and what it means to produce good wine as well as how it should taste.

Some of them were certainly impressed by the high-end equipment of LVWO which led to many questions about opportunities to study one of the further professional training programs in the well-known institute. Maybe, we are going to welcome some of the Georgian students for a second time in Germany, then for further training to become a “meister” wine maker at LVWO…
