Taylor's Culinary Institute Demonstrates its Commitment to Enhancing Wine Expertise for Genting Group Malaysia

The triumphant celebration of the post-pandemic resurgence, hosted by Taylor’s Culinary Institute, demonstrated its commitment to enhancing the wine expertise for Genting Group Malaysia. The institute held an exclusive programme in Genting Highlands, which focused on the Wine & Spirit Education Trust (WSET) Level 2 Award in Wines, a qualification designed for industry professionals and wine enthusiasts exploring wines at a beginner to intermediate level.

Led by the Taylor's distinguished Oenologist and certified Train The Trainer, Assoc. Prof. Dr. Joaquim Dias Soeiro, the programme marked a significant return, following the last session in January 2019. Dr. Joaquim from the picturesque South of France, known for his leadership and expertise hailing in wine across India, Korea, and Malaysia, added an undeniable charm and depth to the programme. The programme has attracted 18 participants from Resorts World Genting and Crockfords Hotel.

This initiative brought together professionals from various restaurants and nightclubs within Genting Highlands, fostering a comprehensive understanding of wines, including Burger & Lobster, Wolfgang's Steakhouse, High Line Roof Top Market, Ayu Awana, Crockfords Café, Cloud 9 and Zouk, engaged in a comprehensive three-day immersive experience.

The WSET programme is internationally recognized and provides a comprehensive understanding of wine to all its learners. During the 3-day intensive training, participants not only learned about wine but also tasted over 40 bottles. The curriculum, sanctioned by the globally esteemed WSET programme, offered unparalleled insights into wine intricacies. Over 40 meticulously curated bottles, including an exclusive Resorts World Genting signature blend, were sampled.

This educational journey expanded the participants' understanding of wines and also illuminated the nuanced characteristics of diverse wine regions. Reflecting on their experience, participants unanimously agreed that the intensive WSET Level 2 programme provided an unparalleled depth of knowledge. Armed with newfound insights into the origins, nuances, and narratives encapsulated within each bottle, they expressed heightened confidence in engaging guests through captivating storytelling, with the ultimate goal of boosting wine sales.

The successful collaboration between Taylor’s Culinary Institute and Genting Group Malaysia serves as a beacon, showcasing the transformative influence of education in the hospitality industry. It's not merely about enhancing wine expertise but also fostering meaningful connections between professionals and their clientele, creating unforgettable experiences. This dedication to education and excellence in the hospitality industry sets a commendable standard for others to follow, promoting a culture of continuous learning and elevating the overall guest experience.
