Plumpton College exports Wine to South Korea
01:00 - 01:00
Plumpton College has despatched its first batch of wine to Nature Wine, a Korean distribution company based in Seongnam, near Seoul. Owned by South Korean Plumpton graduate Gunseob Han, Nature Wine specialises in importing unusual, organic, biodynamic and additive-free wines from Austria, Italy, Georgia, Spain, France, and now… England.
Gunseob, who graduated with a Foundation Degree in Wine Production in 2011, has very fond memories of his studies at Plumpton, particularly his work placement with a biodynamic vineyard in the Languedoc (France). He says “The aim of importing Plumpton wines is both to build the English wine brand and promote the Plumpton College courses.”
