Applied Science Trip to Hambledon Vineyard

Mathematics, Computing & Science

On Tuesday 26 September, our Applied Science students went to Hambledon Wineries in Hambledon to understand the processes which go into fermenting grapes to create wine. 

At the vineyard, the students learned that wine is made in the same way as Champagne. The team were due to start their harvest in a couple of days, which gave the students a chance to see how the whole process of winemaking worked. 

The students were given a tour by Head Winemaker, Felix. During their tour, the students saw how fermentation works in the wine industry and they began to understand how much effort and care goes into winemaking.  

It was a great experience for the students and an excellent way for them to put their Applied Science studies into context.
