A visit to Vignobles André Lurton by students from the Namur Hotel School

Visite école hôtelière de Namur 2

On the 2nd and 3rd of February , Vignobles André Lurton welcomed 37 students and their professors from the Hotel School in Namur (Belgium) .

This school, established 77 years ago, teaches courses in the hospitality industry (restaurants and hotels) to students aged 14 to 18. They also accept somewhat older students who already have a few years of professional experience after their baccalaureate diploma and who wish to work in a restaurant or as a sommelier.

At the end of their studies, these students must do an internship (in establishments ranging from simple brasseries to Michelin-starred restaurants, depending on their level), as well as a trip to a wine region .
