Today, in work, I had to take a test as part of a continuing education programme, (a contrivance of The Wine Institute, lobbyists for the California wine industry). A new-ish manager had decided that it was important for TWWIAGE to have the most informed staff in the Napa Valley. "Here is a link, take the test and then give me your certificate," I was told. No discussion, no training, no follow-up. I am positive that my co-workers and I are now all experts in the field of sustainable winegrowing. Yeah, right.
