A La Carte Training announces the launch of a new on-line eBook ‘How to Improve Your Wine Sales’. This eBook outlines wine tasting basics and features the basic principles of matching wine and food, tips on cooking with wine and even has some beautiful food recipes using wine.

Linda Bamford, principal of A La Carte Training says: ‘Wine education on colour, aroma and taste, wine grape regions and varieties, how to read a wine label, how to store and serve wines and how to understand wine terms, can help to express wine appreciation of the quality and interest of the wine, especially when it is accompanied by fine food,

Ms Bamford says: ‘This online guide is simply NOT textbook theory ‘ it is truly user friendly and easy to follow. This is an original eBook that will enhance the wine knowledge of restaurant management and catering management to get the most out of their wine sales. Wine tasting notes can be downloaded to share when training staff and our website features free articles to enhance wine knowledge even more.

She added: ‘With our wine education guide hospitality management can go on line at a time that suits them, so no expensive seminars to attend, no tests to sit, no grades to apply and no deadlines to meet in order to get a result’. ‘There are no expensive costs per hour, no waiting for anything to arrive in the mail, no extra postage and handling costs, no traveling to classes and scheduled commitments’.

Australian, Gold Coast Restaurant and Caterers Association, ex-chairman, Tony Percuoco says ‘Any guidance such as Linda’s would truly be an asset to the hospitality industry here as there is always a need for hospitality training’. ‘I have worked in the restaurant business since back in 1973 and, even after all these years, I am still learning’, he said.
