“In my internship, after having come in with no wine, sales, or marketing knowledge, I was able to completely take over a wine store, and at the same time, learn about wine in general (how it’s made, how to taste properly, how to describe it in English, French, and even a little Spanish at times). I developed sales skills and most certainly ameliorated my spoken French. I also managed a portion of our web media and communicated directly with clients, contributing to the approachable, fun image of the Arrogant Frog label.

I was taken along to VINEXPO 2011 in Bordeaux where I truly saw the wine industry in motion and made international contacts. I met with many of the company’s clients, and was allowed to confidently represent an enterprise that sells 100 million bottles of wine worldwide.”
