Master of Viticulture & Oenology
Type: Course - University/TAFE
Location: Waite Campus, Adelaide, SA
Institution: University of Adelaide
The master's is a 48 unit program of advanced coursework, including all core courses, a range of electives and the option to undertake either a 12 unit research or a 12 unit professional experience component in either viticulture or oenology discipline.
Description: The viticulture and wine education programs have an international reputation fro excellence. The Waite campus houses state-of-the-art facilities including its own vineyard and the Hickinbotham Roseworthy Wine Science laboratory.
This program incorporates courses in both viticulture and oenology and qualifies graduates to work either as viticulturist, oenologist (winemaker) or in related professions (eg. hospitality and tourism and the food and beverage industry). Viticulture is the study of grape vines and their cultivation and includes side selection, vineyard establishment, management of pests and diseases and the informed application of irrigation and fertilizer to optimise vineyard yield and grape quality. The viticulturist typically works closely with the winemaker to achieve the desired winemaking outcome. The winemaker utilises their training in the science of winemaking (oenology), to process grapes for the production of white, red still and sparkling and fortified wines. The viticulturist/winemaker often contributes to in-house research, sales and promotion of the finished product. Throughout the program, there is an emphasis on the key technical methods and sensory (wine tasting) skills required for a career in viticulture and oenology.
The Waite campus is co-located with a number of research partners, providing a stimulating and unique environment for training, exposing candidates to the latest technologies and enabling them to learn from leaders in their field.
