Online - Trimester 1 - 2023

The Australian wine industry is internationally renowned for the innovative approaches that have made it a leading instigator of many 'best-practices' across the entire wine value chain, from grape growing, to wine making and consumer satisfaction. This course aims to provide students with an understanding of basic viticultural, oenological and sensory principles, such as the life cycle and growth of the grapevine, the unit operations involved in winemaking, and the theory of sensory evaluation of wine. The knowledge gained in this course will provide students with a broad understanding of grape and wine production, as well as skills in the technical evaluation of wine; i.e. laying the foundation for students undertaking studies in Wine Business
